TEACHERS & ADMINISTRATORS
THE PLACEMENT PROCESS
The Placement Team at EA is known for respecting candidates' wishes and providing them with close personal attention and guidance.
STEP 1: APPLY
The first step in the process is for prospective candidates to apply for EA representation via our website. Once an application has been received, applicants will receive an email notification letting them know if they have been accepted as an Educator’s Ally candidate. If accepted, candidates will be directed to follow up with an EA Placement Manager.
STEP 2: ACCEPTANCE
Once an accepted candidate has connected with their Placement Manager, a comprehensive placement file will be assembled. This file will include the following documents:
PERSONAL STATEMENT and/or EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
COLLEGE/GRADUATE SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION (Optional)
CANDIDATE PROFILE (A Placement Manager's insights about a candidate)
As our schools inform us of openings suitable to an individual educator’s experience, we will contact the candidate to confirm that there is interest in being considered. Once we have that confirmation, we will refer the candidate to the school and serve as an advocate for them throughout the process.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept all applicants who wish to be represented by Educator’s Ally. The schools with which we work are among the most selective in the nation and they look to us to provide them with the most qualified teachers and administrators who will be the best possible fit for their unique institutions.
"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."
