9.15.16 – Two positions: Elementary & Secondary Librarian
American Community School, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Sarah P’s comments: It’s September and here are the first of the season’s school positions for next year (2017-2018). If you are interested in pursuing a position as an international school librarian now is the time to polish your resume and submit paperwork to a recruiting agency. In order to apply for these positions you will need to join The International Educator (where these are listed) and/or an agency as well. I always recommend joining International School Reviews as well, an invaluable source of inside information about various international schools. For more on the hiring process of international school librarians please read Chapter 3 of my book and/or visit the Chapter 3 Resources listed.
About this school: ACS is a well-established top-tier school however has recently gone through some changes which have been discussed in the ISR reviews. Abu Dhabi is a safe, modern city but housing is an issue because the school is located on the bottom of the island near the Corniche where things are both crowded and expensive. Interesting that both positions are open and this early. I would ask about why that is so if interviewed.
