Rock Islands, Palau

Palau is a beautiful country. If you want a country where you can dive and snorkel year round in crystal clear turquoise water, Palau definitely needs to be on your radar screen. Did you know that it is also one of the easiest countries in the world to get into? Citizens of the United States, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Guam or Northern Mariana Islands can get one-year visas granted upon arrival (Double check on my Palau visa page for the latest visa information.)

Below is a selection of resources (based on word of mouth and personal research) for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in Palau.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • CareerJet: I’ve seen some postings on CareerJet for jobs in Koror, the main commercial center of Palau.
  • MyPerfectResumeHandpicked sites that enable you to search for employment in specific countries and/or regions around the world.

Teaching English

All of the sites below are pretty similar and have teaching options. While the jobs won’t be plentiful for Palau, it is definitely worth browsing through each site to see what you come up with. Also, be sure to check out this cool table from the International TEFL academy that shows how much money teachers can expect to make in various countries around the world.

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • Go Abroad: I’ve always been a fan of GoAbroad. In fact, on the visa information portion of my website, you will find where I have linked to their global embassies directory. They have a good job portal too.
  • Linkedin: Last but not least, this huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest. You are going to want to look up professionals with work based in Palau.
