2017 AASSA Recruiting Fair

 

November 30 - December 3, 2017


Grand Hyatt Buckhead

3300 Peachtree Road, NE

Atlanta, Georgia  30305

 

The AASSA Recruiting Fair, the first to be held each recruiting season, is specific to South American, Latin American and Caribbean International Schools.  Typically, there are vacancies in the 50+ schools in attendance for over 350 administrative and teaching positions representing all K-12 educational fields. 


Why attend the Recruiting Fair?  Approximately 95% of candidates hired each year attend the recruiting fair in Atlanta. It is especially important for candidates new to overseas teaching and those who are new to a a career in education to interview with recruiters face-to-face.  Even for seasoned international educators, recruiters like to meet candidates in person, and it is to a candidate's advantage to recruit in person if at all possible.   


Cost:  The $110 one-time registration fee covers the cost of attending the fair, so there are no additional costs levied by AASSA to attend the fair. Candidates are responsible for their own travel and hotel costs.
