Be Aware: Atlanta International School posts vacancies on our website at www.aischool.org and with the major international recruiting fairs each year. Several international schools have reported scams involving non-existent teaching jobs. Some international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money to fake employment agencies. All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
