Beijing (Virtual)

November 19 - 20, 2022


Fair Organizer: Xiaohang Sumner


The Beijing Virtual Fair will be held online in November 2022 to meet the needs of schools in the greater China region (including mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan) which are unable to travel to our in-person fairs due to COVID-restrictions but wish to recruit early in the recruiting season for candidates who are keenly interested in this particular region.

About 1/3 of all the vacancies in the world that are posted on our database are in the greater China region. Because the attending schools are from these fast-growing international education markets, we usually have more job vacancies than candidates attending and those who attend will have a high probability of getting multiple interviews and/or job offers. This fair also provides networking opportunities and is thus an excellent place to do in-depth research and meet the recruiters from the top-quality international schools in these regions.

The schools recruiting at the Beijing Fair are not only resource-rich, but also often at the cutting-edge of innovation in international education in the 21st century. These schools are interested in candidates who are not only high in quality, but also open-minded, flexible and enthusiastic about cross-cultural collaboration to enrich teaching and learning. As demand is high, aspiring candidates often find themselves with many career growth opportunities within 1-3 years of working in these fast-growing schools. 

The virtual fair will take place in the Beijing time zone.


The Fair opens its books for school and candidate registrations in the summer of the year before the fair.  As we expect high demand, we ask schools and candidates to register as early as possible to reserve a place. 


As of September 20, more than 30 schools have registered for the fair. Please click "Schools" at left to see the list of registered schools and visit the page often to see updates.

Attending schools will find that candidates at this Fair may have either domestic or prior international school experience in order to qualify for an invitation. We welcome teaching candidates, who are fully activated Search candidates with complete profiles and confidential references. Schools should know candidates are advised that they should be open to opportunities in as wide a range of locations from around the greater China region in order to benefit fully from the Fair. Most importantly, candidates must have a strong desire to work in this particular region.

Experience has shown us that for a virtual fair, schools need to deploy a small team of recruiters in order to efficiently manage the range of tasks involved - researching, reference-checking, evaluating and interviewing applicants, and due to the need to schedule interactions across different time zones. For this reason, we have introduced a single per school registration fee for this event.

Schools can request invitations to attend the Fair from your dashboard in your Search Associates account, from August 16, 2022. We very much hope to welcome you to our Beijing Virtual Fair this November.
