2024 Hiring Conferences – Register Now
Announcing the dates of our much-anticipated 2024 Hiring Conferences!
After a successful run in 2023, we're back with seven in-person conferences that promise to open the door to opportunities and connections for educators and schools alike.
In 2024, we’re excited to be honoring 10 years of hosting FORUM/DEIB. We’re also returning to Atlanta for a regional conference to serve schools and candidates in the Southeast.
What are Hiring Conferences?
Our conferences are a one-of-a-kind chance to engage in pre-scheduled 30-minute interviews, connecting our candidates with our partner schools across the nation. For schools, it's a chance to discover the educators who will shape the next generation. For job seekers, it's an opportunity to meet with many different hiring schools and find your ideal new school community.
Where and when do they take place?
Mark your calendars and register for the following events:
FORUM/DEIB – January 26-27 in Philadelphia (worldwide in scope)
FORUM/Los Angeles – February 2 (regional)
FORUM/Boston – February 9-10 (worldwide)
FORUM/Atlanta – February 23 (regional)
FORUM/New York City – March 8 (regional)
FORUM/San Francisco – March 15 (regional)
FORUM/Washington, D.C. – April 12 (regional)
How do they work?
Approximately two weeks before each event, we open our Conference Module, a scheduling and communication tool that connects candidates and schools. Schools request interviews from registered candidates, and candidates can send messages of interest to attending schools. While many interviews are pre-scheduled leading up to the event, some are arranged in the 24-48 hours before the conference, and a few even occur on-site the day of the event.
Interviews at our conferences are introductory, providing schools with a chance to connect with potential candidates. After the conference, schools may invite candidates for more formal, extended interviews or campus visits, and we've even witnessed on-the-spot job offers!
As a job seeker, why should I attend?
In a nutshell, it's all about incredible opportunities. Our conferences offer you the chance to:
- Meet face-to-face with a variety of schools
- Explore unique job opportunities
- Hone your interview skills
- Grow your network
- Strategize with your Placement Team
- Set yourself up for job-search success, all in one day
In-person interviews offer higher engagement and connection, enabling natural storytelling, trust-building, and genuine conversations. They're an invaluable way for schools and job seekers to connect authentically.
Candidates enjoy the in-person format because it allows them to truly grasp a school's culture and assess their interest in specific roles. Imagine being in a room with dozens of the top independent schools that are actively hiring. This is your chance to explore opportunities and connect with school communities that align with your teaching philosophy and professional aspirations — all in one place.
Why should schools attend?
In a world where time is of the essence, our hiring conferences offer an efficient solution. With pre-scheduled 30-minute interviews, schools can connect with multiple qualified candidates quickly and effectively. It's a time-saving boon, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your school in record time.
How much does it cost to attend?
For active CS&A candidates, our hiring conferences are entirely free to attend. Now how's that for value!
How can I register?
For current CS&A candidates, registration is a breeze through CandidateConnect, and all hiring conferences are entirely free for you. We encourage you to register as early as possible to give schools time to access your profile and request interviews before each event. If you're not a current active candidate with us, you can begin your journey by completing our job seeker application.
CS&A partner schools can register via ORM, and we recommend doing so early to maximize your scheduling flexibility.
See you at the conferences!
