    I am going to the Search job fair in feb. and am quite apprehensive. I have never been to one before, got all my previous positions by Skype. Anyone with advice on what to expect?

    Search Fairs are more relaxed affairs than formal interview situations. I have been to 2 with Search Associates.
    Market place scenario with stalls for each school. Go around to see what vacancies they have, hand in your CV/details/arrange interview. Offers can be made on the day. Schools will also sometimes do presentations.
    Smart dress - suit etc. Smart behaviour.
    They are more time effective as you can see many schools at one time. Feels a bit like a cattle market, but if you can get over that feeling you'll be fine.
    Calibre of schools may be more league 2 and below than premier league.
