BANGKOK SEARCH FAIR.

Search Associates' Facebook

As a fair early in the recruiting season, the Bangkok-January Fair favors strong teaching couples and singles without dependents. The numbers in attendance are expected to be about 550 candidates and 130 schools (most of which bring two or more recruiters).

The schools recruiting at this fair come from a wide variety of locations worldwide. Search Associates-registered candidates, of all nationalities and all standard specialist fields in schools, are welcome to request an invitation to attend the Bangkok-January Fair. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Job Fairs on the website.

RECRUITERS

If your school is interested in attending this fair, please contact Nick Kendell 

Because of the large number of schools regularly attending this fair, there may be a wait-list established.

CANDIDATES

Candidates must be registered with a branch of Search Associates if they wish to request an invitation to attend the Bangkok-January Job Fair.

Attendance at this fair is by invitation only. Checking "interest in the Bangkok-January Fair" on the Search Associate online application does NOT constitute an invitation.

Because this is an early fair and attended by highly experienced international educators, this fair is quite competitive. Recruiters know that they have other fairs to attend at later dates, so they are very selective in this first round. Please talk with your sponsoring associate to determine if this fair is a good match for you or if another fair would be a better "fit".

Experienced, strong educator couples and experienced, strong single educators without dependents have an advantage at this fair.

Candidates who are already registered with Search Associates should notify their Search sponsor of their interest in this fair and request an invitation.

 

Candidates who are new to Search and wish to attend the Bangkok Fair look first at the region in which you live and register with the associate responsible for the region; If you are international (living outside of the US, UK, Canada, Australia/New Zealand), you may register with the following:

Nick Kendell – Candidates with limited or no IB experience and who are open to both IB and non-IB positions should register with Nick Kendell

Harry Deelman – Candidates with IB experience, (PYP, MYP, and/or DP) and aiming mainly at an IB job in an IB school should register with Harry Deelman.

NOTES

·       Essential attendance from 10 January to late afternoon on 13 January. Please note: attendance is by invitation only.

·       Registration for Candidates begins on 10 January. 

·        To get the most from your Fair experience we advise attendance at a candidate orientation meeting  (Highly recommended for all teachers but especially for those new to the Bangkok Fair).

·        DO NOT BE LATE to the interview sign-up session. The interviews arranged will determine your schedule for January 11 - 13.

An early request to your sponsoring associate (after becoming an active Search Associates candidate) for an invitation is important - best during SEPTEMBER or OCTOBER. Candidates will only be invited to attend the Bangkok-January Fair if we consider that they match the needs of the recruiters who will be at the fair and stand a real chance of receiving offers. About 50-60% of the fair attendees are expected to accept contracts resulting from the fair.

RAPID TRANSIT

SkyTrain, (BTS) is half of Bangkok's rapid transit system. The nearest SkyTrain stop is at Phrom Phong BTS Station.

There is also a subway (MRT). Get a BTS/MRT map from the hotel concierge. The nearest MRT stop is at Sukhumvit Station - see below

Location

The close proximity to BTS Sky train Station Phrom Phong, as well as the EM District lifestyle malls, enable mobility and easy access to some of the city’s most talked about hotspots. Only 400 meters or approximate 5 minutes walks from BTS to hotel via Park. Please note that the gate is now open every day from 06.00-20.00 hrs.

SUKHUMVIT

The longest road in Thailand, both it and its many adjoining 'sois' (sub-streets) are poor on traditional tourist attractions but rich in of-the-minute shopping, eating and nightlife. The many fashionable restaurants, bars, air-conditioned malls, luxury hotels and hip clubs give the area a distinctly modern, cosmopolitan flavour. And little, stress-busting pockets of calm can be found in the sweet cafes, atmospheric restaurants and lush day spas that hide down many of its sois. Making exploring its staggering length incredibly easy is the Skytrain (BTS) that runs through most of its downtown stretch
