International School Graduation

Dear ISR, I resigned my teaching position back in December, attended an ISS Fair but didn’t find a job for this school year. Now I’m back in my hometown…

I’m feeling “grounded” so to speak, like I’m going seriously backwards in my life and career. I am registering for recruiting fairs. But for now life isn’t much fun at all…

I’d really like to hear how others survived this sense of idling while my career and life languish. Maybe those of us in this situation can help each other using your much appreciated website as a place to meet/share ideas and experiences. Thanks very much, ISR, for sharing my letter with your readers. Go to full article / Blog
