Re: Healthcare in Retirement

Many consider retiring elsewhere, where you can qualify for free medical care or at least afford good insurance. Insurance that excludes care in the US is much more affordable than insurance that includes it. Residency in the EU is a great option. Marriage is one route, but you can also buy your way...

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

If you’re convinced Search isn’t involved, you get to use their database regardless of when you tell the school. PG speaks of avoiding consequences, but what consequences are there to avoid? The responses you got have a consensus that there are no consequences. I’m the most negative voice here, and ...

Re: Off shore banking

I'd avoid anything based in the EU, unless you have a good reason to choose them. The EU banking rules are strict and getting stricter. To accept transfers from other countries, you'll have to produce documentation proving where the funds came from. Such as your contract with your school, a letter f...

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

That's a little different but still hard to predict. Search may never find out. That's one possibility. On the other hand, they may, at which point they may or may not be annoyed enough to do anything. It's easy enough for them to put your name in the database with a tick in the column for "nev...

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

Or am I misunderstanding? Did you accept the job and go work there, or just accept the job but don’t want to honor your word?

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

You might have a slightly different challenge, in that Search will require a recommendation from your most recent school. This means you have to put Search and the school you left into direct contact, and there’s no telling where that leads. Search will not activate your profile without a current co...

Re: Off shore banking

Do you mean an account in the country where you’re living? Most of us do that. HR should be able to help you. Or an account elsewhere? If you explain the purpose/intent, perhaps we can provide better support. If you’re a US citizen, be aware the landscape has changed considerably in the last decade ...

Re: China Tax Situation for American

The 29 day a year thing only applies in your first year overseas. If you keep up your status as living overseas, you can spend as much time as you want in the US. I've been overseas continually (from a tax perspective) since my first posting almost 30 years ago. I come and go from the US freely.

Re: UWCSEA Workload with young kids?

True, the people I know there (several past, 1 current teacher) have all enjoyed it despite the many commitments. None had small children though.

Re: UWCSEA Workload with young kids?

That seems overstated. It’s a heavy workload plus events. It’s not 60 hour workweeks plus plus.
Ask the school to put you in contact with some teachers who work there and see what they say. It’s bound to be more accurate than second hand information from us.

No, because the candidates are not all prioritizing that weekend just because the recruiter is.

Re: Search Job Fair Demise

Agree with Heliotrope et al. I appreciate what recruiting fairs have to offer in terms of getting a better feel for candidates, plus efficiency and the opportunity to focus solely on recruiting for a few days straight, with all parties likewise focused. That is not the same as enjoying recruiting fa...

Re: Flight for Non-Accompanying Spouse

😂 LOL That may be the most ridiculous “argument” you have ever made.
You’re my favorite village idiot.
Loving this new interpretation of possession.
