International Teacher Recruiting Season: Two useful blog posts to read

leave a comment »

International teacher recruiting season is on and my school like many others has begun recruiting. Whilst a lot of recruitment can be done by directly contacting a school there is also the ever popular recruitment fairs. This week I’ve come across two excellent blog posts on the do’s and don’ts of recruitment fairs and have linked to them both here.

The first is Jeff Utecht’s post here U Tech Tips » The international recruiting season has begun!. Jeff is based in Bangkok and has obviously been through the process several times.

The other post is by Julie Lindsay (moving from Qatar to Beijing)  who helps to keep the recruitment fair meat market in perspective


At this post on my blog you can also find a more Australian centric post on finding international teaching jobs.

If you are looking for a job in Asia and want to find out what the salary packages are like then see this post which has a comprehensive survey of the salaries paid by international schools throughout Asia.
