Recruiting for Sep 2013 / Jan 2014
“I am definitely spoiled by the small class sizes, relaxed student rules, diligent student body, and incredible parent involvement not to mention the fabulous (never boring) city of Berlin. The trains are so great, I hope I never have to drive again.
I earn nearly 1/3 more here than I do in the States, am able to travel everywhere in Europe, and still put lots of money in savings. I can't imagine teaching the way I was in the States.
All of Pam's advice was right. I feel like I finally started living!”

Yes, there are thousands of excellent openings all over the world but nobody is offering good contracts by email. To land a decent job, you must go through the recruitment process. It requires the most current, updated information and recruitment tools. This is what JOYJOBS.COM is all about.
Current Jobs, Aug 2013/Jan
Many new candidates don't know the difference between CIS, DODEA, ISS, American and British private schools and independent international schools, language academies and overseas public school systems, tax-free status and tax deductible overseas income, recruiting services, international CVs, reversed school calendars, international recruiting fairs and visa requirements ─ all that defines the international teaching market.
And as long as your current job gives you professional and financial satisfaction you couldn't care less.
Until, one day, you decide to give it a break and go overseas to look for greener pastures. (Your buying power goes up when your expenses go down. Especially when there is no income tax and your housing and flights are paid for!)
Suddenly, the choices and questions become maddening! Should you spend $1,000 (or $2,000 or $5,000) on a trip to Europe to look for work? Will your current teaching credential be valid? Do you need to take ESL classes or learn a foreign language?
Should you spend $800—$1,600 on a 2-3 day seminar offered by some companies? How to approach the prospective employers? When? Where to find them? Are there any special requirements? What salary/benefits package should you expect? How do you know if it is a reliable school? How about application forms? How do you access the current vacancies?
The more you research all the different options, the more confusing the decision gets.
It's enough to make a person grow hair on the bottom of their feet! What the heck is an “overseas recruiting fair,” and where are they? How else can I apply for a job? What are my chances? How about my husband (wife)?
Heck, can't you just send an application form and hope that a job offer will come in the mail?
I wanted to write about the great chance you offer but I kept postponing it.
I must confess that your charge is NOTHING compared to what you offer. The first month after I began to apply to the posts you sent, I had requests for skype interviews.
Incredible but true: some people still approach the overseas job search as if it were their local school district!
For example, many teachers start their job search by requesting application forms! Others wait until the end of summer to apply. Still others hope to Google in on a miraculous online database that will show them every vacancy - from Mexico to Singapore...
As a result of these misguided efforts lots of potentially good candidates are grounded before they even get the recruitment process going!
Meanwhile, the JOYJOBS members report multiple job offers! What is the secret? The answer is surprisingly simple: If you want to be successful, find someone who achieved the results you want and copy what they do, and you'll achieve the same results!
In other words, “Don’t get eaten alive because a competitor has all the information and tools and you don't!”

Do not turn off the schools by improper resumes and naive questions. To be in a strong negotiating position you must know the overseas specifics.
To win a good contract, you must look and act like an experienced international educator. You need this insider information if you hope to stand a chance: despite the sluggish economy in some parts of the world, many countries continue to develop rapidly. As a whole, the international teaching market remains very competitive!
Whether you're thinking of making teaching overseas your professional career or you just want some relief from your current job for a year or two, this is the resource for you!
So, how does one find a good job abroad?
Amazingly, a lot new candidates make no effort to learn the new job market. No wonder the rejection level among them is so high, even when there are many available positions.
It would be dumb not to use this situation to your advantage: the vast majority of applicants still use the cowboy approach and are no competition to an informed candidate.
