What happens next?
After you send the application materials, we will review your candidacy promptly. If we can assist your job search, then your assigned placement counselor will notify you and provide details about your online account. Typical response time is 2-3 business days.
At this point, you can begin assembling a credentials file that we will send to schools. This includes your resume, letters of recommendation, official transcripts from your degree programs, and, if applicable, copies of your teacher certification.
While not a requirement, we strongly encourage you to consider sending us a video resume.
You will arrange an inteview (either over the phone, or, preferably, in person) with your STA placement counselor to discuss the specific parameters of your search. We want to know your interests, talents, goals, and personality.
Your counselor will help you for the duration of your search, maintaining steady communication to discern the best opportunities based on your interests and talents.
Again, STA’s service to candidates is free! You pay nothing—ever.
When only the best will do, rely on STA!
