Hiring Fair: ISS Online iFair

10.1.17 –  ISS (International School Services) iFair / Virtual Hiring Fair

Date: October 14, 2017
Time: 8am-12pm US Eastern Time

 

Sarah P’s comments:  For anyone interested in the international school librarian market ISS is hosting a first-of-the-season hiring fair. This is an opportunity to gain a break-in position for those without the ‘A list’ attributes, namely international experience, school media certification on top of an MLIS (but you should be able to show you are working to obtain it), and/or being single or part of a teaching team. You must be a registered ISS candidate to attend so if you are interested you need to contact ISS ASAP because establishing a file can take time due to credentials and recommendations needing to be verified.

Please be aware that, while ISS is a recruiting agency they also now run their own schools as well, which are, unfortunately, not always top tier.  So, be sure to join ISR, International Schools Review, and carefully read the reviews of any schools you might be interested in.

(For more information about international school librarianship please read Chapter 3 of my book.)

 

What is an iFair®?

International Schools Services is proud to be the first to offer this type of event for schools and candidates worldwide! It’s the best part of an IRC from the comfort of your home/office. Connect with schools early in the season and set up interviews. No taking time away from school – just you, your laptop (phone or tablet) and ISS recruiting schools connecting online. Everyone will be online at the same time, so you can instantly schedule your interviews.

With the use of technology, finding a position has never been easier or more convenient.
Schools will create a virtual booth, which candidates will enter when the event is live. Each school can customize its booth with information such as: logo and website; information about the school and country; salary and benefits packages; and open positions. Recruiters will be online and waiting to talk to candidates. Candidates can enter as many booths as they like, queue and communicate with recruiters.

Initial communication will be done via instant messaging, but Skype is now fully integrated, so you can move directly to a follow-up Skype interview.

Hiring Fair: ISS Virtual iFair

5.4.17 –  ISS (International School Services) iFair / Virtual Hiring Fair

Sarah P’s comments:  For anyone interested in the international school librarian market ISS is hosting another hiring fair, this one after the height of the hiring season has concluded.  This is an opportunity to gain a break-in position for those without the ‘A list’ attributes, namely international experience, school media certification on top of an MLIS (but you should be able to show you are working to obtain it), and/or being single or part of a teaching team.

News: ISS partners with AASSA

9.23.16
Sarah P’s comments: I recently received the e-mail shared below. ISS (International School Services) is touting this announcement as ‘good news’ however what you need to know is that in previous years you could simply register directly with AASSA and attend their fair.  AASSA , Queens University TORF, and the UNI Overseas Recruiting Fair were the only independent recruiting fairs.  All the other recruiting fairs are sponsored by ISS or Search Associates.  (For more information about the hiring process for international school librarians please refer to Chapter 3 of my book and/or visit the Resources page.)

 

In recent months ISS has been working hard on your behalf to expand the opportunities available to you. Resulting from our efforts is a new partnership we are happy to announce today. This recruiting season ISS will be collaborating with AASSA to enhance your recruiting experience.        ISS Candidates who register for the ISS IRC/Job Fair in Atlanta (Dec. 4-6) are also welcome to register and attend the AASSA Recruiting Fair in Atlanta (Dec. 1-4).

AASSA (Association of American Schools in South America) was founded in 1977 to help increase understanding through international education and improve the quality of teaching and learning in Association schools.

Attending the AASSA fair is optional! You will not have to have a recruiting file with AASSA to be able to attend their fair. The only requirement is that you have an active ISS recruiting file. Your active ISS recruiting file will be shared with AASSA for the duration of their recruiting event should you decide to register and attend.

There will be no additional charge for registering and attending either event. This partnership is for the current recruiting season only, however, ISS may choose to continue it for future recruiting fairs. Please do not contact AASSA as all arrangements will come from us here at ISS. We will keep you informed as more information becomes available with regards to this partnership and the upcoming events in Atlanta.

Jobs: ISS Hiring Fair for School Librarians

4.22.16  – ISS Hiring Fair for School Librarians
Online, USA

Sarah P’s comments: International School Services (ISS) is one of the large recruiting agencies for international educators including librarians.  They offer a range of hiring fairs as well as online fairs and you must pay a fee to join. ISS recruits for their managed schools as well as other schools.  The general consensus is that the schools they manage, particularly in China, are inferior, however they can be an opportunity for you to break-in to the international circuit.  Please see my book for further information.

 

Join ISS for our fifth iFair® on May 11, 2016!
The iFair® combines interview sign-up with the latest technology platforms to bring interviewing directly to your phone or laptop. We’re pleased to announce that Skype has been fully integrated into the platform, allowing recruiters to request a Skype call immediately after your text-based chat. All communication can still be done from your laptop or mobile device.
Registration is now open! Sign up today to participate in this exciting event. You must be an active ISS candidate to participate in the iFair.

If you have questions about creating or updating your account, please email the EdStaffing team (edustaffing@iss.edu).
