Here’s a scenario that comes up this time of year, every year. An ISR Member would like to know what teachers would do.
You accept a position at a recruiting fair in January even though you don’t think it’s the best job you could/should get. The money is good and you think it will help your international teaching career in the long run. But, since you’re not really wowed by the job, you keep your feelers out.
One day you get an email from a school you really like. They want to Skype interview you about a position. It has some administrative duties (yes!), it offers more money (yippee!), it’s known as a better all-around school, and in a better location for you and your family.
You do understand the possible repercussions (blacklisting by the recruiting company) if you drop your other contract. Would you…
Interview only. It’s good for your ego and besides, you’re curious!
Interview and accept a contract. Damn the recruiters!
Decline interview. Ignore the many benefits & accept your situation. “Your word is your bond”
Thanks for Playing….
