    It is AMAZING to see how many of the A to Z posters are actually getting jobs now! We must be doing something RIGHT in the advice that we give. Great job guys! So happy for you all! Now, if you think you worked hard getting the job.... Oh, you have only JUST begun to know how exciting, stressful, scary, fun, thrilling, and challenging the first year really is. YOU have this!

    What grade and/or subject? Elementary Math
    How long have you been trying? 6 months
    How many resumes did you send out? 25 counties - many had specific "you may not contact principals individually" as part of their application, so many more jobs specifically (50-75 is my guess).
    How many interviews or job fairs? 1 job fair with 2 mini interviews; 6 call-in interviews with 3 more calls after I accepted my position. All of these call-ins happened after I graduated and had my license pending or in my hand.
    What general geographic area? East Coast

    I just graduated this May, so as far as connections it is funny but all of the jobs that I had connections to were ones I was passed up for someone else! I had no connections in this district. Two principals interviewed me at the same time for 2 jobs, and they let me pick which one I preferred. Then it was about a 2 week turnaround to check references; in the mean time, thanks to this board, I just kept on applying (and did 2 more interviews). I really fought to do elementary with my math background so this position is a dream come true! I actually applied for this job in late April or early May and did not get called to interview until July so even though most of my interviewing action did not happen until June and July, I am still glad I started in February so that when I applied for this job, I did everything right. :) The first few months were awful, rejection letter after rejection letter without even a call to interview.

    I know I just registered a little while ago but I have been reading this forum for at least 3 years. I'm so glad I had this forum for advice all of these years. My brochure definitely got me my job!
