Job: K-12 Librarian

5.8.17 –  K-12 Librarian
Tshinghua International School, Beijing, China

Sarah P’s comments:  I’m usually leery of China school library jobs because there have been so many slightly shady start-ups in the past few years. However, this school, according to International School Reviews, has an overall good rating although please read the reviews carefully as there is a lot of good information provided which can help you make a choice whether you should apply.  This is a late posting so there is a stronger chance of your being offered a job if you are new to international work or still working on your school library certification. Note: pay is local currency, check exchange rate.
