    CONGRATS to all who have gotten jobs this year. :celebrate:

    And for those who are still looking the 2009-2010 school year has yet to begin so there is still hope. Keep your heads up. :)

    I've got nothing. My school district has now filled all positions. They will be re-evaluating in a week, at which point they may recall some more. My VP has been telling me how I won't have a problem getting a job, but they completely changed their process. Instead of posting the list of openings, they just filled the positions based on our previous experience teaching. Considering my experience last year was doing Resource (which was cut back this year) and my experience this year was doing behavioural intervention (which was cut altogether this year) apparently I'm not qualified to teach in a classroom. I am so irritated at this point.

    At this time last year, there were 58 who had gotten jobs. We're at 30 this year. We're starting to get more though! Hopefully after July 1, a lot more will be offered positions.

    How long have you been trying?
    Since I found out that my one-year-contract was up in April and they started posting jobs in May.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    I was trying to get another job within the district so they already had my resume. I did send them an updated version though with a fresh cover letter.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    Four job interviews including one for my first year position (that they ended up hiring someone with more experience for).

    What general geographic area?
    Central Illinois.

    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    I was really lucky. My first year teaching was a middle school (grades 6-8) self-contained special ed room - - and I was recently hired for the same exact position, at a different middle school in town. The great news is that it's brand new so it is what I make it. :D

    Congrats, Zoom!

    I remember reading about your job search last summer so even though your school didn't keep you, I'm glad to see that someone else snatched you up!
