No they didnt. The business people were arrested on "espionage". The IT was arrested and released on a labor permit violation, not because China was making a political statement but because of a work permit violation. Proximity doesnt equate to association.

@sciteach How is that the best of both worlds? The position isnt available anymore, thats the original scenario. How is it mutual, did the IT and leadership decide together that the position should be dissolved? A pandemic happened, the position has been dissolve unilaterally within the context of a...

There isnt. IE is going to get to really see this year just what practical value agencies and servicers bring to recruitment and what the value add of fairs really is.

@memory1 What were your Bachelors/First and Masters degrees in? Since you work in the US and currently have a work visa, you could potentially apply to UT (Utah) for an AEL (Entry grade) credential. Its still relatively new. At the secondary level if your degree is aligned with a teaching subject yo...

@Heliotrope 70% of an orange is still more than 100% of a grape. A 15% difference isnt a "lot" less, its less, just not a lot, but definitions vary. An IT in the other countries you listed would have to pay rent, airfare, and insurance. Though your just as likely to get a flight to Switzerland as yo...

@Elysium82 The previous post of mine you cite isnt relevant to your inquiry. You will not complete an MA in maths at UPe with that sequence of courses. MA as used above refers to the US State of Massachusetts, which offers among its credentials a Provisional (Entry grade) credential. In the US terti...

Those underwhelming experiences are typical of virtual fairs.

It doesnt state "American teachers" it states "Americans". China isnt going to go after some ITs to make its statement, its going to detain someone (American) who is, for lack of a better word, 'important'.

You dont need to do anything, you graduated from HYPS, those are for the most part Global Ivys, just put that top and front on your resume and send it out there. You could get leadership on the basis of that alone in Asia (maybe not executive leadership, but HOD, Dean, AP/VP/DP of advancement, acade...

@jboeh2 You would apply through Naturalization. The IND is the department that handles your application but you need to be resident in the Netherlands to apply and you need to be proficient in Dutch (there are a number of ways to qualify). The application process takes about a year. While there you ...

@Heliotrope Its better to look at exam candidates than ISs that have or are offering subjects. If we look at language acquisition in the DIP there were 3572 and in the MYP 140 exam candidates, thats a total of 3712 candidates globally. To get an estimate of FTE vacancies there may be, Im factoring t...

@Heliotrope Happy to hear you agree with me. No, its not just cost of living its how much more (or less) the cost of living is in relation to salary. In Belgium (your only example where DTs made more than Switzerland) the cost in Belgium is 40% lower than Switzerland but the salary is 60% lower than...

Any course that comes from an accredited Uni would likely be acceptable to an IS. UPe for example has 5 maths courses (algebra, calculus, discreet mathematics, intro. statistics, statistical inference) those 5 courses would cost you about USD$600 total, you could spin that into a minor in maths. You...

@Heliotrope Then prior to your post I had written "but you absolutely need to get Dutch citizenship. Im assuming youve been married the requisite 3 years since you have two kids together?" Requisite 3 years. @jboeh2 Its a much more complex process meeting the requirements for a residency permit thro...
