    How long have you been trying? Since April

    How many resumes did you send out? Too many to count...applied to about 25 different districts around the state.

    How many interviews or job fairs? 4 interviews and 4 job fairs. Without the job fair I wouldn't have gotten the interview. It was my first job fair ever and the second school I talked to at the fair that I landed the position with. The job also came from the 1st teaching interview I ever had.

    What general geographic area? DFW, TX

    And of course what grade and/or subject? 5th Math/Science

    I was offered a position! I had to do the last interview on the phone while on vacation, but it was worth it. So while I still need to fly back to Texas and take care of paperwork, I think I can consider myself employed for the school year. I'll be in Houston teaching high school Social Studies.

    How long have you been trying?
    Since April 2009, while I was student teaching.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    About 60+ last year, and another 40 this year.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    2 job fairs, 6 interviews (3 alone with Houston.)

    What general geographic area?
    Last year it was NJ, PA, MD, and TX. This year I pulled out all stops and applied all over the country.

    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    Social Studies 9-12. I'll receive my official assignment in the next few weeks.
