The ISS Administrative Search team went beyond expectations to really get to know our school culture and help us define the traits we were looking for in our next leader. Their consultants are experienced school administrators and I valued their knowledge and the care they took to find us strong candidates. – Recruiter, Tashkent International School

International Schools Services was very supportive throughout my job search process. The feedback that they provided, as well as advice and support, helped me find a perfect fit for what I was looking to find. I appreciate the guidance that I received from several of the recruiters that I met. I felt that they were able to see my strengths, and offered strong advice about positions that would fit my skill set. – K.S, Candidate

I really appreciated the mentoring that came with our initial talk. I love an interview where I learn and grow. The questions were challenging and through provoking but then the surprise coaching came. I feel like I can express my experience and ideas in a more complete way after our talk.– J.W, Candidate
