Thanks for your interest in our East Asia Job Fair. Candidates may request an invitation to this job fair from May 01, 2018 (read below).

It is only for schools offering at least two of those programmes. We anticipate that the East Asia Fair will be a friendly event, on a human scale, hosted at ISS Paterson Campus.

If you wish to attend the fair you must be an activated Search candidate. Request an invitation from your home Associate from your dashboard in your Search account. The bullets below are important. Please read them.

  • The venue for the Fair is the International School Singapore, Paterson Campus.
  • The Fair Schedule for Candidates will be available on this page before May 1, 2018.

It is prudent, however, to hand a résumé to recruiters at interview sign-up and at interviews themselves.
