Registration Process

Are you ready?

Make sure you (and your family) are ready for an overseas adventure and an international move! Talk to your parents, your friends, and your colleagues. Do your research (Google, Facebook forums etc), visit the Search website, read the Candidate FAQs. Join our Search Facebook Page to stay on top of important recruiting events and updates. Call or email us if you are wondering whether or not you would be a good candidate to teach overseas, or if you have any questions about what it’s like to live abroad and work at international schools.

Sign up for a Search Account

When you are ready, start your application here.

Create Your Search Profile

Create your professional profile that will be seen by international recruiters. Work through the “tabs” – personal information teaching experience, position preferences, education, and bio. Upload your 2-page Resume/CV, copies of your degrees, teaching certificate and background check. If you have any questions or need help completing the application, just email us. Once your profile is complete, submit your application and we will review your application within 2-3 days.

Request Confidential References

If everything is in order, we will instruct you on how to request online confidential references (you need a minimum of 4). Track your references on your Search dashboard and once all your references have been submitted, we will carefully review your application again.


Once your application is fully approved, we will only then send you payment instructions for the Search membership fee. The fee is US$100 (or Canadian $ equivalent), payable by e-transfer (Interac) or PayPal/credit card. Your Search registration fee includes one free fair.
