I have been regretting ever since I turned down a NET teaching position with a local DSS secondary school this May. Everything went particularly well during the interview and such but on the same day I was offered a contract extension with my current school even though it was for a regular teaching post. Since I am not registered as a NET through Edb, I thought I would not get the special allowance until I do, hence, I chose to stay at my current school and test my luck next year after I do.
But now I deeply regret this decision after reading on this forum about how hard it is to get a NET job. Does anyone know what chances I have finding a job next year? What are the chances of getting accepted through Edb? I have a BA in psychology from Canada , a local PGDE in English, MA in English Education from HKU and almost three years of local secondary language teaching experience. The thing is, I'm originally from HK but immigrated to Canada since primary. Would that affect my chances since edb and many schools would prefer foreigners? I shot myself in the foot with this decision!
