Working with CS&A

If you're interested in a teaching or administrative position at an independent, charter, or like-kind school, you've come to the right place.

Since 1977, CS&A has helped more teachers, administrators, and coaches “make the match” with independent schools than any other organization in the country.

Our Process

1. The Online Application
The first step in working with CS&A is to fill out our free online application. The application asks for things like relevant work history, education, geographic preferences, and interest in any coaching or extra-curricular activity. Your application is reviewed by a member of our Placement Group, who specializes in your subject or area of interest, based on a number of criteria, including teaching experience, geographic flexibility, and educational credentials. If we determine we will be able assist you in your search, you'll be accepted as a candidate and begin to work one-on-one with a Placement Associate.

2. The Job Search Process
We help our candidates find school jobs by first learning as much as we can about a candidate's job search, going beyond what is listed on a resume. At the same time, you build a robust profile with us which includes a personal statement, resume, and transcripts, among other items. Once we understand your career goals and preferences around school type, position type, and school location, and your profile is complete, we send your dossier to schools according to the hiring criteria listed with us for a given position. Throughout the hiring process, we work with you to facilitate the perfect fit, advocating for you to schools on your behalf. Our service is completely free for our candidates.

Our Placement Group

Each Placement Associate at CS&A works in a specific subject area and coordinates all the jobs and candidates in that subject. These areas extend from Spanish teachers to chemistry teachers to admissions officers. Placement Associates are experts in their subject areas, equipped with knowledge of what makes a candidate compelling for a given position. Our personal approach to working with candidates allows Associates to get to know you in greater detail and, more importantly, to understand the specifics about your job search so we can match you appropriately with targeted job openings.

Placement Associates also serve as partners in candidates' careers. In addition to presenting customized job opportunities, they provide advice on resumes, salaries, on-campus interviews, and serve as a sounding board for your career.
