Fair Organizer: Gary MacPhie



This Fair is specifically designed for candidates seeking their first international school position, outside their home country. Recruiting schools will come from all regions of the world, and are OPEN TO HIRING FIRST-TIME OVERSEAS TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS.


By ensuring a level playing field, this Fair offers a great opportunity for experienced teachers ready to take their first step into the international teaching community.


The First-Time Overseas Virtual Fair takes place Saturday December 10th and Sunday December 11th, 2022. A virtual fair provides a practical, cost-effective option for both recruiters and candidates around the world to connect and interview online. Since it is a virtual fair, candidates and recruiters should not have to take time off work/school to participate.


Candidates will have the opportunity to connect directly with the schools during the live-streamed Q&A sessions. Candidates can listen to the recruiters talk about their schools and ask questions about their programs and community. This is an excellent way to learn more about international schools and living overseas.
