HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT
Whether we’re talking over the details of an immediate need that’s arisen at one of our schools, or providing counsel to a candidate weighing multiple offers, we strive to provide the best possible support to our schools and our candidates.
RESPECT IS KEY
At EA, we treat our school administrators and candidates as individuals, not assets in a database. Our approach to our work is thoughtful, measured, and respectful. The respect part is key. It’s central to all that we do at EA and it’s what sets us apart. For our school administrators, respect means not wasting their time with candidate referrals that miss the mark. For our candidates, it means truly honoring their search parameters and never losing sight of the fact that this is their job search, and not ours. As part of this respect, we pride ourselves on being responsive and accessible to both our schools and our candidates (take a look at our testimonials, it’s a thing for us).
WORKING WITH EA
JOB SEEKERS: WHY WORK WITH EA?
The Placement Team at Educator’s Ally takes the time to connect with each of our candidates so we can get a solid understanding of the educators with whom we are working. Recognizing that job searches can be stressful, every step of the way, we provide support, guidance, and expertise to our candidates. Whether offering resume advice, interview tips or making ourselves available for an evening or weekend conversation, our goal is to provide steadfast support to each of our candidates throughout their job search.
SERVICES TO SCHOOLS
WHY SCHOOLS PARTNER WITH EA
We honor our partnerships with our school administrators and consider the work that we do for them a privilege. Over the years, we’ve established trusted relationships with school administrators and we take pride in the fact that we know our schools well. As former school people, we know how busy our school administrators are and we understand that overseeing a search is just a small part of their very full roster. When a client school contacts us with a need, they know that we will move quickly to identify candidates who will be the best possible fit for both their position and their school. We take time to check references, examine transcripts, and get clarification on any areas of question before referring a candidate for a position, saving our administrators valuable time in the process. And when a new school comes on board, we schedule time for substantive intake calls and (in non-COVID times) in person visits so we can get on campus and get a feel for the school community.
FIND THE RIGHT LEADERSHIP
START YOUR SEARCH
Time and time again, our schools thank us for the insightful connections we make in referring the candidates we do and for the care with which we approach their searches. Valuable time is saved on their end by not having to wade through the resumes of unqualified candidates and EA gains the satisfaction of seeing a great connection made.
"I really appreciated working with EA throughout our leadership search. The personal, responsive, transparent and collegial approach the EA team brought to our search made them a pleasure to work with and resulted in our finding the right match."
