After more than 20 years of experience in educational recruiting and placement, we have found that the chances of a candidate being interviewed and hired are significantly greater when we can provide school administrators with a complete credential file. Therefore, if you want to get hired, you should submit a complete credential file that includes the following:
Credential files may be sent by email or postal mail.
Postal mail: 14373 Manchester Road, #688, Manchester, MO 63011
Emailed documents accepted in MSWord or .PDF format.
Helpful Hint for your credential file:
YOUR CREDENTIAL FILE REPRESENTS YOU - MAKE IT PROFESSIONAL!
All schools are now going paperless and request credential files be uploaded or emailed as attachments. It is in your best interest to convert your documents to electronic documents. The most commonly accepted documents are MSWord and .PDF files.
Making an electronic file is probably easier than you think. If you have your own printer/scanner, you can scan the pages and save them into MSWord or .PDF format. If you do not have a scanner, you can take all of your documents to a store such as FedEx/Kinkos, Office Depot, Office Max, etc, and have them scan the file for you. They will scan your documents and convert them into .PDF documents and save them to a cd or flash drive. It is recommended that you save each document individually. Multiple pages documents, such as transcripts should all be in one .PDF document. You then take the cd/flash drive and save the .PDF documents on your computer. You can then email the documents to us. You will also have documents that you can email to schools or upload to on-line applications.
It is also important to verify that all pages are clear, legible and sharp with no stray marks or lines. Transcripts with colored backgrounds are especially tricky. Sometimes making a copy on "lighter" setting will eliminate the dark background caused by the color.
