Frequently Asked Questions
1.    Can you forward a list of the anticipated vacancies available?

Electronic Job Fair Job Board access instructions will be sent to pre-registered candidates about one week before the event. This is a separate database from the general job postings on the NYSAIS website. Only NYSAIS member schools may post on the general listing. The Electronic Job Fair Job Board includes postings from all schools attending the event, which does include non-NYSAIS Independent Schools.

Candidates can access general (NYSAIS Member School) job postings at any time at the NYSAIS website under Career Center then Job Postings. Or, can look directly on NYSAIS member school sites for employment or career opportunities. This information is posted directly by the schools and is updated regularly.

On-site, there will be a physical bulletin board with job postings.

2.    Can someone who hasn’t pre-registered still attend and register on-site? Yes, please follow the instructions above.

3.    What if I am unable to attend the Job Fair from 9:00-2:00 pm?
The candidate schedule is meant as a guideline to provide you with as much information to plan your day.  All of the events that take place during the morning are optional. Please come to the Job Fair at the time you are able to attend keeping in mind that meeting and networking with school representatives takes place from 11 am (if a pre-registered candidate) or Noon (if on-site registered candidate) until 2 pm.

The sessions are designed to assist educators looking to transition from AT to HT roles and those looking to grow professionally in independent schools. Participants will also gain clarity on the hiring structures typically used within these schools from the point of contact, to interviews and demo lessons.
