Many international schools do a high percentage of their recruiting before and outside of recruiting fairs, while others may rely solely on them. Many TIE subscribers have secured a position without attending a fair and others prefer to include them in their job-seeking strategy.
Should you find that schools you are interested in are attending a fair, as a TIE subscriber you can do all your leg-work in advance. You can identify schools of interest, make first contact by sending your TIE resume, supply additional information as requested by the school, and even have your references checked-out beforehand. Once this background work has been completed, you can actually arrange to have a meeting or interview at a specific pre-arranged time with the school head or representative. Because most of the background work has already been done, the chances of getting an offer and signing a contract are significantly increased, making your trip to the recruiting fair much more productive.
