In 2013 ISR conducted a survey that asked teachers — “Was attending a Recruiting Fair beneficial to your career?” Of the 289 educators who took our survey, 30% reported they did not attend a Recruiting Fair & went on to secure an overseas teaching position through other channels. (See original article & comments)
Reviewing the 2013 results, ISR concluded a move away from Recruiting Fairs was underway. If you’ve attended a Recruiting Fair, you know they are fraught with a variety of costly expenses, frustrations & the overall complication of flying thousands of miles to recruit along with hundreds of colleagues vying for the same small pool of jobs. It certainly makes sense for educators to explore other avenues.
Has the indicated move away from relying on Recruiting Fairs become more pronounced today? We want to find out, especially with recruiting season fast approaching.
We invite you to take the same survey we published in 2013 (with the exception of the final question which includes the option to tell us how you plan to recruit this upcoming recruiting season). Is there a trend away from Recruiting Fairs? Let’s find out!
