To anyone used to working with consultants or recruiters be prepared for a real shock--don't expect a supportive, knowledgeable person guiding you through the process at CSA. Brace yourself, please. I've never seen an operation like this. You fill out a form that takes hours to complete. Then SEVEN to TEN DAYS LATER you get an EMAIL with the name of your consultant. No warm call from an experienced person introducing themselves and listening carefully to your background. Eventually you hear from someone who might send you job listings. 20 year old teachers might think this is OK--it's not. You need someone to coach you on the job, the school, the salary--this place hires very young people, and doesn't seem to train them on these critical points. I think CSA does an OK job with very senior position. For everyone else looking for a job, forget it. One thing I don't understand, everyone complains about this place, it seems to be poorly thought of, why doesn't someone who knows these people have a heart-to-heart?

I can't say enough good things about this company. I never even knew there were services out there that helped teachers find jobs (other than online job boards, Monster, etc.) until a friend told me she found her job teaching Spanish through Carney, Sandoe. I applied online in April and was accepted a week later. Note: from what I understand, you are not automatically accepted as a candidate. They go through your application and check out things like teaching experience, geographic preferences, coaching interests, etc. and then make a decision.

Anyway, a couple days after I was accepted, my placement person called me to ask me more about what I was looking for. I had been teaching upper school math for the last three years but was hoping to transition to middle school for a variety of reasons. We talked about this, talked about where I wanted to be, salary range, etc. It's a bit of a pain because at this point you need to send in some more documents -- letters of recommendation, transcripts -- before they consider your file "complete." I did this quickly (I needed a job!), and the following week she started sending my file to a variety of schools. We talked on the phone or e-mailed each week; for a Nervous Nelly I found the exchanges to be very reassuring. In sum, my file was "referred" to 12 schools, and within a month of beginning the process I had three interviews lined up on campuses. Last week I accepted an offer to teach middle school math at an incredible school - I start in August!

Seems like they work primarily with private schools - if you're looking for jobs teaching in public schools, it's probably not the right place. But they do work with schools all over the place -- I was referred to jobs in California, NY, and Switzerland, in addition to Massachusetts.

Anyway, if you're taught before and/or know you want to be in the private school world, I'd highly recommend Carney, Sandoe.

Rude and arrogant personnel who never interview prospects for private school spots (in teaching or admin) but simply have you fill out a long form and ship to a number of schools.
