Q: Why do many job ads here ask for various things but provide no way to submit those things?

Like the ads that want to see pictures, or scans of TESOL certificates or degrees, passports, etc.  They don't provide an email address, and when you click the apply button the only options you have are to give them a resume compiled on this site, and a cut and paste cover letter... is this a red flag for a bad company?  Because there seems to be a lot!

You'll find that many places here ask for lots of things in advance, but once you are there all of that stuff really doesn't matter at all. I think it's a way of making themselves look professional is all it is.

I just send them Cover letter with my contact info. I also ask them to reply to my email address.

 

Most of the time I get replies, where I am able to send my Resume and credentials.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
