Teaching English in Phnom Penh

I emailed 15 schools 1 week before I arrived in PP whilst volunteering in a school in Kampot, then as I am now here followed up with a phone call to see what the situation was,plus called more International English language schools to ask re-vacancies.I have a full TESOl certificate and 2 months volunteering in a school in Guatemala and just a week in Kampot here.Before I heard they are crying out for teachers here.My general response was either ,no vacancies,maybe in the future we will take a look at your CV,we may have something in July,or you need a degree (which I dont have). Most of the schools are okay without the degree though.I was told the reason I had no email replies is that in Asia, they only reply if the need you,not like polite Brits who may email sorry no vacancies.The other problem when I did get someone who said possibly in the near future said minimum 1 year contract.I was upfront and said can only do 4 months as eventually it would be my main reference for any new jobs,as I know many people just leave after a few month into their contract.SO my question is any more tips or avenues,does anyone know anywhere where the school is saying,my god I just cant find any teacher.Any help would be great,I know about Khmer440 webiste,but cant see anything there
