My wife and I are international teachers with decades of experience between us, and have both used a variety of job placement services when looking for positions, both at home in the States and abroad. From our first interview with CS&A my wife and I knew right away that working with CS&A was a different experience; not only did we feel uncommonly well looked-after — a feeling that was amplified as our relationship with the CS&A team continued — but it was very clear from the beginning that they were interested in us as individuals, and not just in ticking boxes, or in running up their numbers. In addition to the usual sharing of potential job listings, they maintained personal contact via email, and often checked in just to see how we were doing, and how the search was coming. Every aspect of our experience with CS&A, from the relative ease of using their web interface to the highly personalized care, was positive, and has ultimately led to our accepting positions at a school we are very excited about in Hong Kong. I couldn’t recommend their services more highly!
I am still so thrilled to have been offered the position! I signed the contract last week and will start next week. I could not be happier about this opportunity. It’s closer to home, better hours, summers off, a significant increase, and most importantly, I get to primarily focus on my practice as a therapist — all great things. I will also be challenging myself in new professional ways by teaching two classes and coaching this spring.
I can’t thank you enough, Jamie, for helping me find this opportunity. It really will be life changing for me and my family. And if all goes well, those interviews will be the last interviews I ever go through. I couldn’t have done this without your help. My wife and I have had the most positive experiences with CS&A. I will surely refer others to CS&A in the future.
Hi Todd and LeeAnn,
Thank you so much for being a great resource! Before learning about Carney Sandoe, I had very little clue as to how to find a teaching opportunity. One of the schools you sent my materials to has turned out to be a great fit, so I’m excited to tell you that I’m accepting their offer! You have truly helped turn a dream into a reality, and for that I will always be very grateful.
All the best,
Dear Elizabeth and Emily,
I want to share with you some good news – I accepted the position! Of the three schools where I did on-campus interviews, it was my favorite. This fellowship is exactly what I need at this point of my career.
I am beyond excited and want to thank you two for everything you have done for me. For sending me all those referrals, for reading my personal statement, for being so quick to respond to my emails, and for working incredibly hard to host all those conferences! I hope everyone in the office has an incredible summer. Carney Sandoe rocks; I would have never been granted this amazing opportunity without you all.
Hi Elizabeth and Emily,
Thanks for the email. I am pleased to tell you that I have accepted an offer at the school we were discussing and will be starting there in August. Thank you so much for all your help. I would never have known about this position without Carney Sandoe. The forum in April was particularly crucial to my meeting the head of school and making an impression. Thanks again!

Dear Mr. McClatchey,
I first heard of Carney, Sandoe, & Associates by word of mouth, and more precisely when I was still working in Italy. Most of my (then) students were adults from US, and they spread the word about this great association that helps teachers find the job best meeting their expectations in America. I therefore applied, and I was given the most detailed and professional interview I have ever had. Eventually I decided to join one of CS&A hiring events in New York, and the only interview I had led to my first job in US. I had been planning to move to US for a while, but I did not want to leave my job in Italy before finding a new one in United States.
Which is why I am spreading the word myself about CS&A, because I would really not be doing what I am doing right now without this one connection. Thank you very much again for your help and your support!
With my best regards
We can’t express our gratitude to you…in just a few words. We’ve both been beyond impressed at what Carney, Sandoe & Associates have to offer candidates . Just to let you know, we’ve just referred some excellent teachers to CS&A for next year when they, like us, are looking to return to North America.
Warmest regards from warm Dubai,
Thanks so much Jamie! I am thrilled . It has been a pleasure working with you as well–none of this would have happened if you hadn’t been so proactive about reaching out to the school ASAP after our first discussion. You had a good eye for a perfect match of school and applicant. 🙂 Thanks again for everything, let me know if you need anything else from me as well!
Hello Jamie and Courtney,
I’m happy to say I’ve just accepted an offer to teach Spanish at the school you referred me to. I just wanted to thank you for your hard work these past few months. You’ve been a huge help to me in my first real job search and I honestly can’t believe that your services are free because they’re very high quality. Thanks again!
Thanks for this email. It does make me feel pretty good that I found a school that I feel holds many of my same values about education. And I have you guys/gals to thank wholeheartedly. Couldn’t have done it without you.
I wanted to inform you that I signed a teaching contract for the 2016-17 academic year with the school we had been discussing in Los Gatos, CA.
Thank you for all of your assistance and follow up regarding my career search this past year. I truly appreciate all of your guidance. I would be glad to share my positive experience working with your firm with others in the future.
Again, thank you for all of your helping with my success teaching placement search.
This email is to let you know that I have received and accepted a job offer. Although I did not reach out to this particular institution through Carney, Sandoe & Associates, I cannot begin to tell you how helpful your company has been for my job search. Almost since the moment I uploaded my materials I have been receiving invitations to interview with great schools, and by the time I received the offer I was already at the final stage of two processes; this is a lot considering that I am a nonresident alien and need a sponsor. To sum up, you do your work really well and I would love to join your pool of candidates again some day!
Best of luck,
Alberto López Martín
I am so excited to share with you that I accepted the position yesterday! It is one of the schools that you sent my referrals to.
I thank you VERY MUCH for all your continuous efforts and hard work in supporting me in the recruiting process… Courtney, you are a PRO!
Thank you, thank you!!! I recommend CS&A services any time the opportunity arises…I am so glad a colleague shared the link with me.
My very best to you.
Thanks so much for supporting me in so many different ways. My search with Carney Sandoe allowed me to learn so much about how schools operate and what they want. I doubt I would have this job if it wasn’t for you.
Dear Mr. McClatchey,
This is a very quick note to let you know that as a first-time attendee of your Boston Forum, I found it to be exciting, positive, and very useful. I also wanted to specifically highlight the work of Beth McArdle, who organized a panel discussion. She did a fantastic job (as I am sure you know) leading the discussion. I learned a great deal from her that day!
I am writing to let you know that David and I have accepted jobs at two amazing schools. We are extremely happy with the result and would like to thank you for everything you have done. You run an exceptional service and I have informed my colleagues that they should be using you if they plan to move to the states.
All the best,
I just wanted to let you know that I accepted a job yesterday at my top school. Thank you again for all of your work. I am really impressed by the Carney Sandoe organization. You guys were so helpful during this process of helping me find good schools. I can’t thank you enough for your time and professionalism. I have been highly recommending you to my friends.
Elizabeth and Emily,
I wanted to share some exciting news! I recently accepted a teaching position at the school you referred me to in Bangkok, Thailand. I will be starting work on July 18th, 2016.
Thank you so much for an incredible experience. You both gave me amazing options for international positions and I am so excited to be going abroad and taking my career to the next level.
It has really been my pleasure and I hope to stay in touch as I would love to work with you all again when looking for my next international placement!
After spending nine years as a school administrator at a world-class international school, it was time for my family and me to make the leap and find another wonderful experience somewhere in the world. As you can imagine, having to give up an amazing job and venture into the world of the unknown is scary. Working with Art Charles and John Chandler was really what got me though the ups and downs of the job search. They were attentive, supportive, and encouraging, but they were also real. They were an advocate when I needed one and people I could call on for advice. My wife and I joked how long it would take them to respond to an email. The answer, over the run of five months, was an average wait time of about 15 minutes before we received a response!
These are knowledgeable professionals who understand the needs of schools and of schools administration. They are kind, compassionate, and have blown me away with their level of service and professionalism. CS&A has made a name for itself internationally and worldwide because they hire people like this. I am very grateful for their time, efforts, and focus on making sure the “fit” was right for me, but for the school as well. They are more than finding a school administrator, they are more focused on finding one that will be happy and one that the school will be happy with in order to create a relationship that will work for an entire school community. I could not be more positive about my experience with them and with CS&A.
John and All,
I couldn’t be happier. A match was made that fits and feels right. You all played such an instrumental role in this process, which contributed to my sense of calm and sense of confidence.
It has been a privilege to work with you. Know that I have sung your praises since our first phone call. You are setting the bar for the international community. We thank you.
With great gratitude,
It’s such a coincidence that you contacted me today. I just came out of an interview that was a referral from you guys and I got the job!!!! I start tomorrow. I’m so amazed and speechless, but I sincerely thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. You guys are awesome. Please give Margaux my thanks as well.
I have signed my contact and everything is now official. I already told you this, but I can’t thank you enough for all of your help. You and Ada were crucial in finding me my dream job. The Assistant Head of School credits you for facilitating the match. He said you highly suggested that he at least give me a call.
Thank you so much,
Dear Courtney and Ada,
I am delighted to tell you that my interview went really well. I was offered a full time position there for the 2015-2016 academic year and I accepted it. I can’t believe how much both of you have been efficient and helpful to allow me to find the right place for me. Thank you very much for your help and efforts. I will not hesitate to recommend Carney, Sandoe and Associates to skilled French instructors who are looking for a teaching position.
Again, thank you for your help. Best regards,
I wanted to send a quick note under separate cover to thank you for your assistance in obtaining my CFO position. Your responsiveness was greatly appreciated as well as your ability to step in when needed to assist in the process. In addition, I want to also thank you for the way you handled the last few steps so that things could move forward more smoothly and expeditiously. Carney Sandoe is fortunate to have you indeed!
Hi Elizabeth –
Wanted to let you know I got an amazing offer today for the Kindergarten position you referred me to and have accepted and will be signing and submitting my contract tomorrow!!
Thank you SO much for all your help during this process, I am so glad I found you all and have had you guiding me through the independent school application and interview process. I am so excited to work at this amazing school, and I have you and CS&A to thank for that!!!
Thanks so much,
I have just accepted a position as a First and Second Grade teacher at a school you referred me to. Thank you so much for your support and help during my job search.
I really appreciate the advice, referrals, experience, and thoughtfulness that CS&A brings to the process of finding a good fit between schools and candidates. I will definitely recommend CS&A to colleagues and look forward to maintaining a relationship with you in future job searches.
Have a great day.
I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for your help with my job search. I have been having so many interviews! I will recommend you to every physics teacher I know that is looking for work and make sure and leave note with my advisor to recommend you to future students.
I just wanted to send a quick note now that my search has come to an end to say how grateful I am of both Scott and Carney Sandoe. I have been using Carney Sandoe ever since I found out about them close to six years ago now. All throughout that time both Scott and Carney Sandoe have been supportive and full of information about finding a new job.
Finding a new job is never an easy task and can be filled with a lot of stress. Scott has been a class A stress reducer when it comes to job searching. He has always been available to answer my questions. He has consistently followed up with me to make sure that I am doing well with my search. He also does a great job at making sure that I see all my options. I was going for a specific position this time around but I was appreciative that Scott provided a lot of other opportunities simply because getting the position I wanted was not guaranteed.
Overall, I just wanted to send this note to say I am extremely happy to have Scott on my side when it comes to finding a new position. He truly makes a very hard task seem very easy and I know it is because of a lot of hard work on his end.
Thank you both to Carney Sandoe and also to Scott! I now get to look forward to my new position at a great school.
Wanted to let you know that I’m all set with a fantastic job. Our discussions yielded great results, and next year, I’ll be the Director of Personalized Learning. I’m happy, my wife is happy, and my kid will have a great place to grow up. Thanks for all your help along the way. The experience with CSA, under your personal care, was professional, easy to manage, and proved to be just what I needed to find a job in a place I might not have otherwise considered.
All the best,
I am currently an assistant principal at an American International School in Venezuela, but I was recently offered a principalship at a private school in the US, in Phoenix, Arizona thanks to the outstanding support of Carney, Sandoe & Associates.
In particular I am writing to express my sincere thanks to John Faubert for his assistance during this process. As a candidate for my first principalship, I knew there would be hurdles along the way, and that some schools would have a hard time hiring a first-time principal. Even so, after several ‘rejections’, I do have to admit I was beginning to feel a little unsure of my decision. John took several opportunities to Skype with me to discuss my leadership style and experiences in order to help me find the right fit. His guidance and confidence in my ability to secure a principalship truly kept me going. As I mentioned, he took the time to understand my style, and my strengths, in order to steer me towards schools that would be a good match. In the end, I secured a position at a school that matched my professional philosophy perfectly.
I couldn’t have asked for a better support system. I will always be grateful for John’s help, encouragement, and understanding over all of these months. From the bottom of my heart, and from my family, thank you!
I had a successful interview/campus visit yesterday. They offered me a position as a French teacher. I am writing to let you know that I accepted their offer. Therefore, I am ending my job search as of today. I want to thank you for being such a wonderful placement team. I don’t think I could have found my ideal school without your help.
I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for meeting with me this morning. I really enjoyed talking with you. It was quite refreshing to have an interview with such a friendly individual. I think your disposition speaks greatly to the nature of what Carney Sandoe does; that is, being a friendly guide in the scary world of job searching.
Thank you for all your effort in helping me find a position in the last couple of months. I want to thank you for all your help during my job search, and to let you know that the service you guys offer is amazing. I will be recommending your services to all my colleagues searching for a job in the field in the future. I appreciate all you guys do to help us teachers find jobs nation-wide in excellent schools.
Thank you very much for everything.
I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and kindness in helping me to find a post, and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Your level of service has been unparalleled and I truly appreciate what you do.
I have accepted an offer to teach in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I’ll be conducting the college band, teaching brass and percussion methods, and teaching music education methods courses. I am excited about working with students, and especially working with future educators.
I want to thank you and Carney, Sandoe for the many job referrals you facilitated on my behalf. I have truly appreciated your kind assistance with my recent job search. Your service and communication combine to make an extremely helpful and efficient tool in the truly daunting process of looking for a job!
I will be sure to keep Carney, Sandoe and Associates in mind should I need to conduct a new job search in the future.
I wanted to let you know that I was offered the job in New York teaching French and I will be taking it. I want to thank you so much for your and all of your organization’s help in this process and search for me. You all are a Godsend and I am so appreciative of all CS&A has done for me these past few months. It is clear that your company cares a lot about its clients. I’m so appreciative!!
Thanks again, and I’ll be sure to refer my friends to check out Carney, Sandoe & Associated. Well worth it!
I did obtain a position as a lower school teacher! The most wonderful aspect of the CS&A experience for me involves being matched with a ‘new’ position that really is a perfect blend of my past education/experiences and career dreams. I have worked for a good decade as a speech-language pathologist. When I needed to relocate to a different geographic locale, I strongly desired to remain in the independent school setting. The fact that CS&A was able to match me with an independent school in my desired geographic locale that addresses the needs of students with language based learning disabilities (my past experience as a speech-language pathologist) as a lower school teacher (a long held interest of mine) is amazing-serendipitous, really. Whenever anyone, be it someone from the independent school environment or otherwise, asks me how I found this fantastic job opportunity, I never fail to mention the role that CS&A played!
This past week I was out in California doing campus visits. I received an offer for the Spanish teacher position, and I have decided to accept it. Thank you very much for your help during my search and putting me in touch with the schools. I feel this would have been an infinitely more complicated process if it weren’t for Carney Sandoe and your help along the way. Again, thank you for all of your help in finding this great position.
Dear Ben and Beth,
As you know I accepted the job offer, and it is the job of a lifetime for me. It is such a great fit; you really did an excellent job. I just wanted to take the time to update you and let you know that what you do really helps–and the connections you forge are real. Thank you for doing what you do!
I just wanted to let you know that I have been offered and accepted the job. Thank you so much for your help during this process! Although I wasn’t placed by Carney, Sandoe in the end, your referrals were extremely strong leads for me and I was very interested in all of them! I am very happy that I chose to use Carney, Sandoe.
All the best,
I am writing to thank Todd Gochman for his work with me through Carney, Sandoe, and Associates this year. He has worked with me since October in building an online resume and sending out my information to schools. I have recently accepted a job teaching in Boca Raton, Florida and could not be more happy with the process.
Thanks again, I will be recommending your services to anyone I know who is looking for a teaching position.
Dear John and Fred,
Thank you both for your emails of congratulations and for all of your support and encouragement throughout the process.
We are excited about our upcoming adventure to Kinshasa and being a part of the TASOK community – I am pleased to have achieved my first headship and really looking forward to the challenges and rewards that comes with such a position.
I first began my career in international teaching using a couple other recruiting firms. When we started looking this time we connected with each of those organizations. (With one we were even required to pay a substantial fee and complete many requirements.) But we didn’t feel any personal touch with them. My point here is that my experience with Carney, Sandoe has been above and beyond my expectations, and I am very impressed with your level of service and support. From the moment I was first in contact until now, you have responded to every email in a timely manner, and treated me with care, respect, and helped me along the journey – at the same time doing the same for the school and other candidates. It always felt like you were in my corner. You genuinely and thoroughly took the time to get to know me as a candidate through my application, Skype interview, detailed reference checks and in email. I can’t thank you enough, and will definitely recommend you to colleagues and schools – and look forward to working together again with Carney Sandoe in the future. The other organizations don’t even come close to the sophisticated level of communication and support.
Take care, and will be in touch
I cannot speak more highly of Carney Sandoe – which I heard about through another success story – and am convinced I could not have found such a perfect school without Leslie and Maddie and your whole team. In fact, without Leslie’s heroic efforts in making sure I sat down with the hiring folks at my new school at CS&A’s Washington DC hiring conference, I don’t believe they would ever have been on my radar. I interviewed for a middle school position they had open, and we all fell in love with each other! They ended up offering me a position in their upper school – 9th grade world history, Technology, and AP Psychology.
Thanks to Maddie, Leslie and the entire team for all of your hard work and effort – I clearly could not have done it without you!
All my best and I hope you have a great summer.
I am a happy to report that thanks to your help, I was offered and have now accepted the Media Arts Position. I cannot thank you enough for your persistence in recommending that they review my resume. This is life changing for me and my family, and I am beyond thrilled to be employed at such an amazing school. I have you to thank for this so, once again, Thank you Thank you!!!
While abroad, I created a free basic profile with [CS&A], which includes a statement of your teaching philosophy, a resume, and letters of recommendation. The agency also asks that you indicate locations around the world in which you are willing to teach, and what your areas of interest and expertise are.
Shortly after, Carney Sandoe & Associates began sending my documents to schools within my area of interest, and I only had to follow up with cover letters. Between the months of January and May, the agency sent my documents to something like thirty schools, and at the beginning of May I was offered (and will accept) a Spanish teaching position with a college preparatory school called Oakwood School in Morgan Hill, California.
For students interested in teaching children and adolescents, I strongly recommend using Carney Sandoe & Associates. The agency sends its members’ resumes to schools often before the positions becomes public, giving them a bit of an edge over other applicants.
I just signed my contract and sent it…I have really enjoyed working with you, Schuyler, and CS&A. I want to thank you for such helpful feedback every time I had a question. I had a terrific experience working with CS&A; I learned so much and feel that I am more prepared for next year than I would have been had I gone through this process on my own. Thank you!
I apologize for the delay in response. Great news!! I received and accepted an offer…I am very excited and extremely grateful for all your help, time, and effort! Please send my best to all who helped in the process. I really enjoyed working with you all. Your responsiveness, insight, and empathy were both helpful and comforting. I am indeed very glad I had the opportunity to work with you.
All the best,
Dear Beth and Alex,
I’m writing to let you know that I received a wonderful offer on Friday from a school in Atlanta, and I’ll be accepting that position (officially) tomorrow!
I’m writing to celebrate that news with you and to express my gratitude for your extraordinary help along the way.
So thank you again! It’s clear to me now–even more than before–that you’re both involved in something truly great, something with the power to really change and improve people’s lives. I feel very fortunate to have met you both. I know where to go now and where to send others.
Will – First of all, thank you so so so much for all your help in my job search process. I have accepted the offer, and I’m really excited about this. I really couldn’t have done this without you, especially for the LA Forum – speaking to you before all the interviews (my first teaching position interviews ever!) really helped me get my head straight and made me perform well that day. Those interviews led to the school visit interviews, and even to this offer!
Thank you again for your fantastic work! I love all of the schools I encountered, and I’m so thrilled to have encountered so many wonderful people who work in education. Not only are you an all-star, but your clients are, too.
I accepted the offer today – my wife and I are very excited.
I want to thank you so much for all of your guidance and help over the last year plus. You’ve been an awesome resource and advocate and I sincerely appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
And major props to Carney Sandoe as a whole. You guys put on an awesome event in Boston and offer a really useful service for job seekers.
So I’ll sign off for now and reiterate my sincere thanks for everything.
All the best to you and your family.
It is crunch time and I have made a decision: I will be taking the job! I am about to send them a message and a signed contract. Thank you so much for being a sounding board in the process and offering me your advice. And thanks – of course – for finding me the job! I very much appreciate it. CS&A has once again proven a wonderfully efficient way to find a job while living in Europe.
I just wanted to reach out and thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. You previously said it would be OK for me to work with other firms as well. So, I tried working with a smaller, more regional firm. Let’s just say it wasn’t nearly the positive experience I’ve had with CS&A. I walked away with a newfound appreciation for you and your firm, and the very kind, honest, and friendly approach you have when dealing with me. It’s clear from your tone and choice of words in your e-mails and phone conversations that you really do care about me and the candidates you work with. You have taken the time to listen to what I want and you believe in what I have to offer, and you’ve made me feel genuinely hopeful I will be placed in the right school. Thanks again.
I thought the conference was really great and productive. Everything was so organized and well run. I very much enjoyed my school interviews. I also really enjoyed meeting the other candidates during the breaks between interviews. It was very helpful for me to speak with them and hear their own stories and how they got into teaching. There were people at all points of their careers, either at the beginning or more experienced, so it was great to hear their opinions and perspectives.
Thanks so much,
Can’t thank you enough for your assistance over the years. You run an excellent company and I will gladly refer others to your organization…the best I found in my job searches. I feel as though I’ve landed at a wonderful school with a bright future. Many thanks for the referral.
I cannot thank you enough for your support and assistance in finding this job. I would never have been able to find this school on my own in a million years – I am going to recommend Carney Sandoe to everyone I know!
I do want you to know that I really like your agency; I felt like you really care and were working to help me find a position; were my partner in helping me to find something. I really appreciate the personal
attention you gave me.
First of all, I am so happy to have had you to work with. You made this process both enjoyable and worthwhile….If you ever need a ringing endorsement for Carney, Sandoe & Associates, just let me know. I appreciate both the professionalism in the application process and the broad reach that you give to your candidates.
Dr. Sue Langlois
On Friday I was offered the English position. I accepted the position yesterday.
Thanks for everything! Some smaller agencies I met with were quick to say that Carney Sandoe was “too big and impersonal” to help me find a placement, yet 75% of my interviews (and my new job) came from you guys!
I just wanted to send you an update that I’ve accepted that position. I will be an associate director of admission with my focus being on working with international markets.
I am tremendously excited for this position and it actually came down to choosing between this and another great school. It was tough, but I’m very excited about my next step.
Thank you so much! You have always been great to work with and I appreciate your help very much.
I’ll be sure to reconnect if I ever decide to make another career move but I foresee myself being very happy for quite a while!
I have accepted the position as Director of Enrollment Management. My contract begins on June 1st and I couldn’t be more excited! Thank you so much for all of your help. It was most certainly a long road but well worth finding what I believe will be a great match. Without your referrals I…would have missed out on this amazing opportunity. Thank you again for your patience and help finding a great school for me. I am incredibly grateful.
I am a teacher and career-changer who recently found a position
through Carney Sandoe. I wanted to say what a positive experience I have had
working with Todd Gochman.
The thing that strikes me most and is a unifying theme for Todd has been his professionalism. He has been prompt in his communications with me, from the beginning. He got back to me quickly after I initially contacted Carney. He gave me personal attention in interviewing me. He worked to match me with the opportunities that were best-suited to my personal goals and to create a fit between myself and the school. Along the way he has provided me consistently with information and I have had knowledge of where I stand and what steps I need to take. When I have had questions Todd has provided me with thoughtful and insightful replies. He understands the industry and I benefited from that.
Todd has also been adept at adapting and seeing possibilities; for example, I had mentioned in an email that I was traveling from New York to Los Angeles to interview at a school. Todd was in contact with a different school in the L.A. area that had a need in my academic area, and he arranged for me to meet an administrator from that school. That brief interview led to a later full-day interview, and the position which I have now accepted. I’m grateful for Todd’s ability to think on his feet combined with his awareness of the marketplace.
Needless to say I am a satisfied customer. Thank you for your company’s efforts and to Todd for his consistent quality work.
