I arrived in Córdoba having just submitted my thesis and really wanted to make an impression. The great thing about the Spainwise Jobs Fair is that you have the opportunity to speak to so many different schools. In the space of a few hours you get the chance to do so many interviews, which, for a newly-qualified teacher like me, was an amazing opportunity. The fair itself was great. There was so much information and I even found that speaking to other teachers was helpful as they had experience of teaching in Spain and were able to offer some useful tips. I had one interview set up before I got to the fair (with TECS Summer Camps) and within ten minutes of having registered I had a second interview organised with Academia Blue Door in Córdoba.
I walked around to the different stands and spoke to a lot of people and if I had one piece of advice, especially for newly qualified teachers, it would be not to worry about a lack of experience. I found that a positive attitude was one of the most useful things I had. I did a few other interviews throughout the day and my final two interviews were with TECS and Blue Door. By the time I arrived back in Ireland I had been offered the job in TECS for the summer and within a week, after a follow-up interview, I was offered the job in Blue Door
