Important Notice for Candidates: Be Aware of Potential Recruiting Scams

Please note that some teachers seeking overseas employment have been approached by various individuals or groups running scams and requesting money. 

These individuals/groups claim to be a reputable school (or assume the identity of an existing, reputable school) and ask teachers and/or administrators seeking overseas employment to send them money to assist in the payment of a work visa, interview or application fees, plane tickets, or other recruitment related costs.  Please know that no legitimate school will ask any teacher or administrator to pay them to obtain a job and/or work visa.   If you have been asked by an international school to send money to cover such costs, you are probably the target of an elaborate scam.  Be aware that these fraudulent activities seem to becoming more frequent.  Do not send money or pass on banking information to any school seeking professionals to come work with them. 

Update! AISA is currently the target for one of these scams. This website is AISA's only site for job applications. We also receive applications which have been submitted to Esol Education's site. Any other site which claims to advertise jobs at AISA must be considered to be a fake. The police have been informed.

All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
