School Administrator Testimonials

  • EA was a critical component in my job search. Before I connected with them, I was at a complete loss; it felt like I had so many things to do all at once and, this being my first post college job search, I was completely overwhelmed. The first thing my placement manager did when I connected with her was get to know me better by learning about my experiences and goals. She was very reassuring and had full confidence that I would secure a job (which was incredibly helpful because I wasn’t that confident). She provided me with an extensive list of schools and available positions to apply for, as well as tips on how to perfect my resume, cover letter, and interview. In addition to this, she offered general advice/ recommendations, and these resources really helped me fine-tune my portfolio. Bottom line, she was a kind, helpful, responsive (she responded to my emails so quickly!) and supportive mentor. I highly encourage anyone doing a job search in the independent school world to connect with EA. My placement manager was the best thing to happen to me during my job search, and without her I might not have gotten a job!

Candidate/Teacher Testimonials

  • I am so grateful to Educator’s Ally for helping me now through two successful job searches! I used EA two years ago to help find my first job at an independent school that I have absolutely loved working at. As my program at this school comes to a close this May, I have been using EA’s help again to find the next step in my teaching career. My placement manager has gotten to know me and my teaching style and truly guided me throughout my search–especially since many schools have begun distance learning. She reached out to schools with sample teaching videos I had put together to help aid my application while we are unable to visit campuses in-person. I am so grateful for all her efforts and am happy to announce that I will be teaching at a new school this coming fall 2020. I definitely recommend Educator’s Ally to anyone searching for a position in independent schools, and absolutely plan on using them again for any future job searches!
