8.21.17 – ISS sponsored Webinar: Why Teach Abroad
August 30, 4-5PM EST (USA)
Sarah P’s comments: Here we go for the International School Librarian recruiting season. This is the area where the most international positions are listed and thus is the easiest way to break into international work. While it is still a good idea to join an agency and be vetted, the majority of schools are now advertising on TIE and accepting direct applications. However, attending this free ISS webinar will give you an overview of the field.
ISS (International Schools Services) is one of the oldest US schools recruiting agencies but please be aware that they also now run their own schools as well, which are, unfortunately, not always top tier. So, be sure to join ISR, International Schools Review, and carefully read the reviews of any schools you might be interested in.
For more information about the hiring process for international school librarians please refer to Chapter 3 of my book and/or visit the Resources page.
Let’s talk about a few of our favorite things:

1/3/15 – ISS Hiring Fair for School Librarians

Sarah P’s comments: International School Services (ISS) is one of the large recruiting agencies for international educators including librarians. They offer a range of hiring fairs as well as online fairs and you must pay a fee to join. ISS recruits for their managed schools as well as other schools. The general consensus is that the schools they manage, particularly in China, are inferior, however they can be an opportunity for you to break-in to the international circuit. Please see my book for further information.
