If you decide to teach EFL - do what honorable people do - get yourself some training in how to do it properly. People in much of the world pay, what for them is a significant amount of money, for their ongoing education in English. Please do them the service of educating yourself in how to do it well.
Getting yourself trained will also greatly increase your job satisfaction - when you KNOW you are doing a good job, and you can see your students progress.
IF you have the time and the money it takes, look for a school that offers you the "internationally accepted standards" of at least 100+ hours of classroom instruction - and a minimum of six hours of observed teaching practice.
