How To Obtain International Employment in ESL, K-12.
Hurst, Donna M.
A guide to obtaining English as a second language teaching jobs in international and American schools overseas contains information on the kinds of jobs available, provides a timeline calendar for job-seeking, and lists sources of further information. The nature of the international school, its characteristics and personnel practices, accreditation, employment opportunities, desired teacher qualifications, and recruitment practices are discussed. Addresses are given for federal agencies with overseas schools, private organizations that hire or place teachers extensively overseas, education departments in American territories and possessions, international corporate employment programs, and multinational programs with possible employment opportunities. The job search timeline chronicles a year's preparation for overseas employment, beginning with resume updating and initial contacts and continuing with school selection, application, interviewing, follow-up, and obtaining appropriate papers for work overseas. Questions to ask when applying and interviewing are also suggested. (MSE)
