SAS Pudong

What is SAS Pudong like for kids with slight learning needs? Kids who might need a bit of support but don't have full blown issues in lots of different areas.

Saying No Politely

I'm new to the job search process. If I get an interview offer from a school that I don't want to go to, how do I politely say no?

Re: Doubling up on Recruitment agencies

@GrumblesMcGee "One could interpret this behavior from Search as a sign they're desperately trying to hold onto their market share and wary of anything (off-platform communciation, candidates listed with multiple agencies) that could lead to them either losing your commission or incentivizing school...

Re: Doubling up on Recruitment agencies

@sid Great response. I laughed when you referred to the CD Rom. You make some good points about your associate getting to know you better via being cc'd in. I can shift my thinking about that. Maybe it's just this specific associate compared to the one I had a few years ago that I think retired. It ...

Re: Doubling up on Recruitment agencies

My search associate seems adamant that I cc him on any emails I send to schools outside of the Search website. I joined ISS and GRC. What is the protocol for applying/communicating with schools from within Search vs. ISS vs. GRC if a specific school is on all 3 platforms?

GRC Reference

My wife and I have signed up with ISS and GRC. Because of a glitch in the system, she was able to see all of her references in GRC. She saw that one of her references gave her a "Good hire, give me a call" response instead of the one that says she is endorsed without reservation. This surprised her ...
