< Back To Fair List

Cambridge, USA

January 26 - 29, 2024


Fair Organizer: Jessica D. Magagna


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!!"

-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
