9/21/15 – School Librarian: immediate opening
International Creativity Academy, Kuwait City, Kuwait
Sarah P’s comments: ISS (International School Services), one of the largest recruitment agencies, just sent out the announcement listed below. I share this posting with reservations. If you need an immediate job, want to get your foot in the door of international work but lack either school media certification and/or experience then carefully read the reviews (International School Reviews) and if you know what you are taking on, then go for it. You need to be prepared to keep your head down and do the job and then you can move on after two years. FYI: normally ISS expects you to join their agency however in this case they are saying you can send a letter of inquiry directly to the school.
