Comments and information about hiring policies on International School Community:
Every week members are leaving information and comments about the hiring policies at international schools around the world. Which ones go to the Search Associates Recruitment Fairs? Which ones hold interviews over Skype? Which ones have hiring restrictions imposed on them by the host country? All important questions to think about when job searching, but where to find the answers to those questions?
Sometimes it is hard to keep track of which international schools go to which recruitment fairs and which interview style and tactic each international schools employs. At International School Community, we want to make the search for information about hiring policies easier for international school teachers. In the school section of each international school profile page on our website, there is a section specific to the school’s hiring policies. The topic is: “Describe their hiring policies. Which recruiting fairs do they go to? How do they typically hire (e.g. face-to-face interview, Skype, etc.)? Are there any hiring restrictions mandated by the country?”
Here are 3 out of the numerous comments and information related to the hiring policies of international schools that have been posted on our website:
“This school went to the Search Fair in Boston in 2011. The interview was 1 on 1 with the principal. It was quite informal, but he also asked some important interview questions. After the first interview, I receive an offer on contract in my mailbox, so they for sure want to hire at the fair. They were able to allow for a few a day to decide as well which I think is important.”
Seoul International School
“The school is hiring earlier and earlier via Skype, though they still go to the fairs. There is no hiring restrictions in regards to age. They use Search & ISS and do a lot of recruiting in Canada (all of the heads of the school are Canadian). Last year the HS principal did a lot of interviewing via Skype.”
Western Academy of Beijing
“Go to SEARCH fairs in Bangkok, London and Boston. Also other fairs in New York, San Francisco and Toronto Some people hired after SKYPE interviews – often people who have been recommended.”
