How many times have you applied to a school wishing that you knew somebody that worked there?

Knowing somebody and getting the ‘inside scoop’ on an international school could definitely help you in your quest to set up an interview there.

At International School Community, we made that search for ‘informed people’ even easier with our Top 40 Schools with the Most Members page.

Check it out…we’ve updated the design and features on our member profile pages!

July 6, 2013


On International School Community we strive to have the largest network of international school educators; which also includes those people interested in working at international schools for the first time.  Each month we are getting hundreds of new members signing-up to become a part of our community.  Currently, we have 2724 members in total on our Members List page.  We are definitely the place to go to network with other international school educators!

So, how has our member profile page been updated?

We have changed the design of the whole page to make each profile easier to read.  We have also increased the size of the member’s profile photo.

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 12.15.34 AM copy

We’ve added a new category so that you can now put where you come from on your profile. Knowing where others are from (especially those whom are from the same country as you) can be very beneficial information to know when checking out the hiring policies at an international school you are interested in applying to.  If you have any questions to ask them (if they know about an international school you are interested in working at), just click on the ‘Contact this member’ button to send them a private message. Additionally, we now have an email notification set up so that the member you sent a message to will automatically receive an email letting them know they have a new message.

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 12.18.57 AM

We have added more new topics to the Personal Info section of the Member profile page as well.  Instead of just listing the number of years that members have taught at international schools, we have now added a ‘Total years teaching’ section so that you also have the opportunity to highlight your years teaching domestically in your home country.

There are also now links to that member’s Blog and Twitter page.  If you have a blog or twitter page that you think would be of interest to the international school community, make sure to update your profile to include those today; great way to market yourself.

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 12.15.34 AM

Lastly, way at the bottom, there is now a ‘last-updated’ date.  When perusing through our member profile pages, you will now see when each profile has last been updated.  As you are perusing don’t forget to utilize our Member Profile search feature, if you have a more specific search criteria for the kind of members that you’d like to find. You can search by Region of the world, Country, City and Job Title. You can also do a key-word search by using the Other search box.

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 12.56.16 AM

Lately we have been getting 150-250 new members signing-up each month.  Check out our over 2700 members on our Members List page. If you are already a member, sign-on today and make sure your profile page is up-to-date.

Here are some things you might want to update: upload a new profile pic, upload a photo from a trip you just recently took, update the number of years you have been teaching, update your current location if you are moving to a new country this summer, update your current school if you are planning on working at a new international school next school year, etc.
