ISS International Recruitment Conferences (IRC)/Job Fairs are high-energy events, with negotiations and contracts often offered on the spot. We sometimes jokingly compare the interactions between schools and their prospective candidates to speed dating, just because of how many connections are made in such a short time.

If you can’t attend any of our traditional IRCs, log on for our exclusive online hiring events: iFairs®, where we facilitate virtual meetings and interviews between candidates and recruiters. Since ISS piloted this innovative recruiting platform in 2014, it has dramatically accelerated the hiring process, proving to be one of our most successful initiatives.

Keep in mind that you must be an active candidate with ISS to attend these events. A candidate application takes 2-10 days to process, depending on receipt of confidential references. Apply as early as possible for the best chance of being an active candidate in time to register and join us at these events. We hope to see you there!


The in-person networking that goes on at the fairs is vital. It allowed me to meet a lot of fellow candidates, offer support from my own experiences and network with administrators that I might work with in the future. My favorite aspect of the Atlanta 2016 fair was the presence of the ISS leadership. I recognized them because they kept interacting with us in our candidate room. Placing their bios and pictures on tripods around the room made conversation easy. Having an international expert, who has worked in a dozen schools over their lifetime, stop at your table and chat with you about your interests is Yoda sharing Jedi stories with some Padawans.

I never thought this process would be so fast and relatively easy for me, as I have never taught overseas before … I was able to target and speak to several schools via the new iFair®, which made my time at the Bangkok IRC that much more efficient. I ended up continuing those initial online conversations, and it gave me a competitive edge at the fair – I signed a contract with a great school on the spot and look forward to beginning my new overseas teaching job soon.
