Good evening! Like all of you, I am a highly qualified teacher applying for and searching for jobs like crazy! I was lucky enough to student teach at a great school (Southwest Ohio/Cincinnati area) and was lucky enough to do a long term sub from Feb. to the end of the year in the same building. Due to decreased enrollment however, I was not offered the position I was subbing for. I subbed for enough days to qualify for benefits under the teacher association's contract and I now have to be interviewed for any job I apply for within the district. It's a high in, which I'm very grateful for. The principal where I worked helped me draft my resume and cover letter, and both have been well reviewed. I have interviewed for four positions, two in district and two out of district. I know that the market is VERY tight in my area and I should be grateful for my interviews but every phone call I get expresses that "you are a highly qualified, passionate professional..." but yet no job offer. I was just wondering how many interviews some of you went on before you recieved an offer? The principal where I subbed and student taught is even calling principals in district on my behalf for me when I post for jobs internally. Reading some of your posts have made me feel better, but I would just like some feedback on how many interviews some of you went on before being offered a job? Thanks and keep trucking along!
