The other firm I was working with treated me like yet another file, but Educator’s Ally took the time to get to know me as a candidate and as a person. They truly are an ally in your search process. My Placement Manager offered valuable input throughout the process, took the time to listen to feedback, and used EA’s vast network of schools to land me interviews. From the timely email replies, resume advice, and feedback on job interviews, EA’s personal approach made all the difference. My Placement Manager was a fantastic partner in my search, and that partnership remained in place every step of the way.
While other firms rely on promoting large conferences, EA provides you with personal connections with hiring managers that grow your network through meaningful relationships. If I walked in the door as an EA candidate, I knew it gave me added credibility as a candidate. Their personalized approach provided me with fantastic opportunities and all of this support and I wasn’t even charged a fee. My Placement Manager at EA played an integral role in helping me to obtain an offer from a school that is a dream fit. If I were a college student looking to teach at an independent school, or an experienced educator interested in advancing my career, my first step would be to connect with EA.
