I would like to teach English in Europe but have heard it's difficult unless you have EU citizenship (i.e. you come from Ireland or the UK). I am thinking of getting my CELTA and have heard that it carries more weight than the TEFL there.

Would having the CELTA help give me a better shot of landing a job in Europe or would it still be difficult for me to find work in the EU regardless of what certification I have? I'm from the States.
