The Recruiting Fair Diaries

 

diary-148615604-350x350..Recruiting Fairs have been aptly described as intimidating, frustrating, exhilarating, a cattle call (sometimes accompanied by a choice expletive or two). Truth be known, no matter what you might think of Recruiting Fairs, they do remain one of the more sure-fire ways to land an International Teaching position.

..If you’re planning on attending a Recruiting Fair, a firm understanding of the intrinsic dynamics of the event is essential for success. There’s much more strategy involved in landing a job than simply lining up in front of a recruiter’s table and trying to talk your way into an interview. Knowing what to expect and having a game plan is essential for success.

..Simply stated, what you need, going into a Recruiting Fair, is foresight. To help our readers get the edge, ISR invites you to read teachers’ day-by-day, blow-by-blow accounts of their Recruiting Fair experiences. Such an inside look at Recruiting Fairs is essential if YOU want to hit the ground running and walk out with the prize!

    I just wanted to forewarn people of upcoming fairs that many schools are not necessarily focusing on you who paid money to get to the fair. I couldn’t even get interviews with several schools because they were so busy DURING FAIR TIME Skyping with candidates who didn’t come to the fair. As a general practice, I don’t have a problem with that, but if candidates paid to attend a fair, recruiters should be providing their focus and time on the people who showed up.
