What’s it like to live and work in Turkey? What are the pros and cons of teaching English there? As your travelling Career Buzz correspondent I took my recorder on a recent trip to Turkey.

With an educational background in public relations and advertising, Gokce Ucar began working in the hospitality industry in the resort town of Kusadasi near her hometown of Izmir. She’s in her mid-twenties and talks to us about life and work in Turkey.

At 14:30, we are joined by organizational researcher and career transition professional, Basak Yanar, who left her native Istanbul to do a PhD program in Toronto.

Plus at 39:15 , Zoe Davids from Cape Town, Sami Anderson-Talbi from England, and Mick Jackson from Texas share stories of what it’s like to work as teachers of English in Istanbul.
