    Welcome to the Melbourne Search Associates International Job Fair.

The teachers who receive invitations to this fair are  are passionate about their students and have a proven track record. This is traditionally the most successful Search Associates fair in terms of candidate placements. Please see the tab, 'Schools Attending' for an up to date record of registered schools. This list will grow as schools finalise their hiring needs. We anticipate around 60 international schools will be in attendance and approximately 240 candidates. We would love to see you there!

    "Thanks very much. It was a bit of a crazy experience, but it was certainly interesting, exciting and ultimately rewarding. Congratulations on a great fair and the great professionalism of all who organised and facilitated."


    " A most heartfelt thanks for running such a calm, personalised and efficient fair! I can't imagine the hours and logistics that go into making such an operation successful, but I really appreciate the fact that it ran like a dream and there was always someone ready and willing to assist with a smile and a chat. Your warmth, humour, efficiency and advice made it such an enjoyable experience. The 'Teen Team" are my favourite part of the fair - those are the most personable, practical and gracious young people."


    "What an experience! As new graduates apprehensive about getting interviews, let alone offers - our eyes were opened to the range of opportunities in meeting and engaging with international schools. We have been blown away by the professionalism, structure, quality and 'down to earth' manner in which you and your team conducted the event. Thank you."
