Why Become an ATOMS Candidate?

Choosing a career in education is one of the most important decisions you will make. As such, finding your ideal job and campus can be very stressful and time consuming. We, at ATOMS Placement Services, are here to assist you in obtaining your job placement goals within the independent school STEM community. So, what exactly can we do for you?

As an ATOMS candidate, our team will conduct a search specific to your individual requirements.  Our process takes away the stressful and time consuming burden of finding and applying for multiple teaching and/or administrative positions and instead brings these opportunities directly to you.

  • Are you teaching what you are passionate about?
  • Do you want to teach a different schedule?
  • Are you tired of teaching to a test? 
  • Would like to have a say in the curriculum of your students? 
  • Are you interested in becoming a department chair?
  • Do you know how valued your experience is? 
  • When was the last time you were excited about going to work?
  • Are you ready for a change of scenery?

ATOMS can introduce you to new career opportunities and give you the freedom and time to think critically about which option is best for you. Working with us, you stay focused on your career goals and succeed in finding the best place for you and your family. 

As an accepted ATOMS candidate, our services are always free.  We do the search and provide you with the opportunities. You decide which positions you would like to pursue.  Our success is measured in your successful job placement. We have the same goal because we partner with you in your job search.

Other recruiting firms focus on pushing papers and don't concern themselves with their candidates' aspirations. We specialize in a customized service that caters to the individual needs of teachers and school administrators. We do not relegate your portfolio to a portion of our team; our entire team works on your behalf to find you the best job possible. We are not a resume clearing house; we want to place the right teacher in the right job – every time.


Where do we place?  ATOMS works with hundreds of leading independent, private, day and boarding schools in 38 states (see the blue colored states in the above map), as well as countries in Europe and Asia.

Working with ATOMS was the best decision I made when it came to choosing a placement service. ATOMS was, by far, the better company. ATOMS was very attentive and professional. They listened to me and perfectly matched my location preference and experience to several schools. They took the time to discuss the offers and how well each school was a fit for me. I’m looking forward to starting at my new school in the fall. I can’t thank ATOMS enough for being an excellent match-maker.
