January 27 - 30, 2023
CAMBRIDGE REGENCY HYATT
Fair Organizer: Jessica D. Magagna
We are thrilled to announce our Cambridge fair is back in-person for 2023. We hope to see you all there for what we know will be an exciting and successful event.
The Cambridge fair is one of the first job fairs founding Director, John Magagna, started over 30 years ago, and is one of the most successful job fairs offered. Historically, the fair has hosted some 350-400 pre-screened teachers, administrators, and intern candidates and attracted as many as 250 recruiters from around the world.
Whether new to international teaching or a seasoned international educator, this flagship fair is one to consider. The strategic timing in the recruiting cycle makes this a highly advantagous fair with close to 70% of candidates attending receiving an offer.
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!!"
"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"
"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."
The timing of the Cambridge fair is quite advantageous, as it is neither too early or too late in the international recruiting cycle. School recruiters will be able to interview a large pool of excellent candidates and candidates will have access to a large number of positions available.
The Cambridge fair continues to be recognized as one of Search Associates most successful job fairs by both schools and candidates alike!
The Cambridge fair team offers extensive personal assistance to schools and candidates attending. To help us in these efforts, there are numerous Senior Associates on hand and several members of our Consulting Services Division and Executive team will also be attending!
We are happy to accept those candidates and schools who are fully registered and have received an invitation to attend. Having said that, this fair is highly competitive and therefore, we encourage candidates to talk with their Associate to determine if this fair is best suited for their job search. Once a candidate has been accepted for membership with Search Associates and activated, they can request a invitation directly from their candidate dashboard page. NOTE: Candidate invitations for our 2023 Cambridge fair will not be available until after August 16, 2022. More information about the Cambridge fair will be posted in the coming months to include the list of schools attending, schedule of events and more, so please visit this page again!
