"I'd like to thank you for all the work you do in setting up these fair opportunities for us all. I'm glad I decided to come to the fair this weekend. It was fairly laid back and very positive. It was run efficiently and everyone I was in contact with was very professional, from Associates to recruiters to candidates. I will surely recommend Search [Associates] to other teachers and use you all if I'm job hunting again in the future. The hope is that it won't be for a long time!"
