> Finally, the service I was hired through is the International Schools
> Services (ISS). The ISS places roughly 50% of overseas teachers in
> "International Schools", which, I believe, is in schools that have
> registered or sign up with ISS.
> Typically, international administrators recruit through ISS, UNI, and
> ECIS combined, and travel from one fair to another until they have
> filled their vacancies. There are usually two rounds of fairs: one in
> February and one in early June. The June recruiting fairs are fewer
> and are either new vacancies that have come up unexpectedly or
> were not filled at the previous fairs. I think in general, that the
> best positions are filled at the earliest fairs.
> There are many, many more "international" schools that may be
> more locally based or are not registered with all three services.
> In fact, there is another "international" school here in Dar es Salaam
> that isn't even listed in ISS's International Schools Reference Book,
> published by Peterson's and there is also one in Zanzibar that is
> only listed in the ECIS reference book. If you want to register with
> ISS and find out about their recruiting fairs, you can request that
> information from ISS:
> International Schools Services
> P.O. Box 5910
> Princeton, NJ 08543
> (609) 452-0990
> Fax: (609) 452-2690
> Typically, you need to register early for these fairs, November or
> early December.
