SABIS® Educational Services Hosts Job Fairs
With an active presence in 20 countries on five continents, the SABIS® Network currently includes over 8,000 individuals working in schools or SABIS® corporate offices. In an effort to source a greater number of skilled, qualified, driven individuals, the Human Resources (HR) Department at SABIS® Educational Services (SES) in Lebanon recently hosted their own job fairs at SABIS® Network schools in the region. The SABIS® HR team welcomed hundreds of guests to the International School of Choueifat in Amman, Jordan, on January 30 and 31, 2016, and SABIS® International School – Adma in Lebanon, on April 8 and 9, 2016.
On a mission to deliver information about SABIS® and the benefits of working within the network, SES recruiters met with candidates, held five-minute face-to-face interviews, and distributed flyers, brochures, and branded giveaways such as pens, USB bracelets, bags, and more.
Job fairs have proven to be very valuable to SES recruiters, who are able to screen dozens of candidates in brief, face-to-face interviews, giving them a quick impression of the candidates. In the brief interviews, recruiters complete profile sheets on candidates while delivering information about SABIS®, SABIS® Network schools, and the recruitment process in a comfortable setting.
Beyond hosting their own job fairs, SES recruiters made an impression on thousands of students from top universities in Lebanon – including Notre Dame University, St. Joseph University, The American University of Beirut, University of Balamand, The Lebanese American University, and The Lebanese University – and those who attended a job fair hosted by Al Faisal University in Saudi Arabia.
Following each of the job fairs, the HR Department at SES noticed an increase in the number of professional résumés they receive. “Recruitment fairs have proven to be great way for us to gain exposure to local individuals who are interested in joining the SABIS® Network,” said Mira Abu Rustum, Regional HR Manager at SES. “With the right marketing and word of mouth, we usually get around 200-250 candidates, most of them ambitious, motivated applicants looking for a career and future with a respectable institution like SABIS®.”
Several job opportunities for part-time and full-time jobs as well as internships are available across the SABIS® Network. Among the openings are teaching and administrative positions in Azerbaijan, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the U.A.E. With the network expanding annually, new positions open regularly.
