I have just started looking for Secondary vacancies overseas. I have a few skype interviews over the coming weeks and 2 interviews in London for jobs in the far east. However, only one of the schools will pay my expenses. This will be fairly expensive as I have to travel from Scotland. Does anyone with more experience know if this is unusual? I have also been invited last minute to a job fair in just under 2 weeks so I am worried that this could become a very expensive operation. I have no IB experience and I have heard that the job fairs in January focus on this. Would experienced overseas teachers stick to applying directly to schools and wait until Easter before bothering with a job fair? Any advice for this newbie would be much appreciated.
