Fair Organizer: Jessica D. Magagna

The Cambridge fair is held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just minutes away from Harvard Square. One of the first job fairs started by Founding Director, John Magagna ,Cambridge is considered the "flagship" fair due to its long time success connecting international schools and educators for almost three decades.


The Cambridge fair is strategically placed in the recruiting cycle to meet the needs of our member schools and candidates. This fair is one of the larger fairs Search Associates has to offer, hosting between 400-450  pre-screened teachers, administrators, and intern candidates and attracting as many as 250 recruiters from around the world.

As with all of our Search Associates job fairs, attending the Cambridge fair offers both candidates and school recruiters the opportunity to schedule interviews to determine if there is a good "fit". In addition, it is the best way to network with other international teaching candidates (as well as recruiters) and get a good sense of the joys and challenges of teaching abroad. Below is a small sampling of what some of our candidates had to say about attending the Cambridge fair.

"This fair was an amazing and fabulous experience. Well done Search Associates!!"

-Heidi Stevens

"All of us who attended from Escuela Bella Vista recommend the Cambridge Fair for the following reasons: a) The advice, assistance and availability of our Search "sponsors" b) The smaller size facilitated getting to know the recruiters and teachers c) The on-line registration made communication much easier before the fair"

-Jeannette Armbrustmacher

"Thanks so much for all of your guidance and support. I could not have been more impressed with the entire Search Associates staff. I look forward to working with you again in the future."

-Philip Charland
