In recent years, droves of educators have opted to abandon high-priced, time-consuming, Recruiting Fairs and instead, rely on digital platforms such as Skype for landing international teaching positions. The ease and ability to interview for schools in foreign lands without physically being present has certainly changed the recruiting game!
To help keep International Educators abreast of trends in teacher recruiting, ISR periodically conducts recruiting-related Surveys designed to help YOU make informed decisions on how best to approach your next job search.
The first ISR Recruiting Fair Survey dates back to 2013 and revealed just 34.6% of participants found new overseas teaching positions without attending Recruiting Fairs. Jump forward two years and the same Survey in 2015 showed a full 46% of educators found overseas teaching positions outside of Recruiting Fairs. Recruiting Fairs appear to be fading in popularity.
Fast Forward to 2019
Are Recruiting Fairs continuing to sink in popularity or has there been a resurgence in popularity? ISR cordially requests your participation in our 2019 Recruiting Fair Survey, the results of which will help colleagues around the globe better plan their recruiting strategy for the 2019 – 2020 season. Your participation is well appreciated. Thanks in advance.
