    No job yet, no calls, no interviews :( I've emailed every principal in the area, received 4 emails back saying they have no positions available. And one email saying that they are waiting to see if anyone wants to transfer before calling new hires.

    I still have hope.

    Target sells cotton stationery paper in packs of 100 that works well for resumes, too. I think it was 7 or 8 dollars - at least half the price of resume paper.

    oh no JunieB...that is too rich for my blood! I shop at office max or office depot or staples because every dollar I spend goes towards rewards teacher's points, to get a gift card to spend on more stuff! I didn't pay a dime for my last purchase!

    but thanks for the suggestion! i will look at wal-mart, where I can use my discount!

    i don't even use resume paper and i've had more interviews than i can count. i really don't think it matters at all. as long as it is on neat, clean paper you're golden. heck, i've gotten interviews from emailed resumes!

    I did the same thing TAY-- but I think I hit a new low--- I have even emailed superintendents!... I interviewed for a PR position at a school district by emailing the superintendent, she responded back that she forwarded my resume to the hiring team and I was interviewed that week (still haven't heard anything)

    I think sometimes it pays to be pushy-- it shows enthusiasm and that you really go after what you want! At least that is what I tell myself when I'm emailing.

    I started calling principals last week-- I think they are still on vacation..

    there are over 700 school in city of Chicago. There are charter schools, turn around ( or turnover as I call them! Reorganized after low test scores, cleaned out staff...hiring all new staff) I printed out the entire list, including the Pre-K For All and Partnership Pre-K programs.

    And I started calling, emailing, and snail mailing all of them.
