Re: Mortgage for overseas

If I would know anything about mortgages for expats, I would have surely responded, as would many others on here I think. All I know about mortgages for expats is that it's not very easy but that it is certainly possible (I once heard someone mention HSBC but I forgot who and also can't recall if th...

Re: Native Vnese going back to VN to work

It's all about the ratio vacancies vs. jobseekers. Not sure if it'll be better than during the regular recruiting cycle, likely it will not. So yes, there will be jobs, but there will be other teachers looking to get those jobs. It might be that there will be less competition from other Southern hem...

Re: Off shore banking

Ah, 'retail clients', so wouldn't affect (most) teachers anyway.
But odd indeed, although 'local legislation' means at least it's not Saxo policy.

Most people I know (the ones that know their stuff) slightly prefer Interactive Brokers to Saxo, but both are apparently good options.

Re: When to announce a departure

I only know three teachers that went back home to teach, but at least two of them needed a reference from their international school. Plus, if you want to get back into international teaching, it would be good to have parted on good terms at your last IS. There's no real downside to informing them i...

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

Maybe I'm missing something, but why wait? The OP gave his word to a school, but said they've since changed their mind: they don't want to work at this school after all. If there's a chance the school will want to hurt the teacher's career, for example by informing SA, that chance will increase with...

Re: On Search Database but Not Hired through Search

How would SA find out? The job wasn't listed on SA, and since they weren't involved I doubt the school will think to report you to Search. They might not even know you're on Search, and if they are, they might not want Search to know they recruited a teacher who is on Search without telling Search t...

Re: UWCSEA Workload with young kids?

I know a few people working at UWCSEA, and all them enjoy working there. They do indeed work hard though (some of them harder than they have to because they just can help themselves), although not 12 hour work days. Not sure if I'm correct, but it does seem the salary at UWCSEA has dropped a bit, or...

I'm saying the data doesn't support your opinion.
