    What grade and/or subject? 7th/8th Math (Algebra and Geometry)
    How long have you been trying? March, 2012
    How many resumes did you send out? around 50
    How many interviews or job fairs? 13 interviews, 0 job fairs
    What general geographic area? California


    I originally interviewed at this school for a Math/Science position in late June. I didn't hear back from them, but they posted a Math opening 2 weeks later. I wasn't sure what was going on, but figured it wouldn't hurt to apply, even if they didn't pick me for the first job. So I applied for that job too, through the district's job website. The P called me on Monday to make sure I understood it was strictly Math. (I should have told him my AtoZ login name) I was very enthusiastic about the position. He didn't need to reinterview me and said he would make a decision within 48 hours. HR called me a few hours ago, offering me the job!

    I am so, so relieved. Also, it's a great school, so I'm feeling very fortunate right now.

    What grade and/or subject? Middle school Latin
    How long have you been trying? April this year
    How many resumes did you send out? More than I can count it feels like! I received no interviews in my own state, and traveled out of state for 3 interviews.
    How many interviews or job fairs? One job fair at my university that was just disastrous. 3 interviews in person, 2 over the phone (one that ended in a job offer on the basis of the phone interview alone, if you can believe it. I was very surprised after all of my rejection, but I ended up turning the offer down later after thinking it over).
    What general geographic area? Relocating from TN to NC for my wonderful new position :)

    Congratulations! We have at least one seasoned Latin teacher who regularly posts. She has awesome ideas in general and probably would be a valuable asset to you in particular.

    I finally got a job too! Fifth Grade ELA / Social Studies teacher

    How long have you been trying? Six years
    How many resumes did you send out? This year about 100... Over the past six years I have averaged about 325 a year.
    How many interviews or job fairs? This year I interviewed with one school but they had me do 4 interviews.
    What general geographic area? MA

    In MA it is all about pure luck and who you know. Every school I have worked for has been laying off teachers due to budget cuts so there are candidates everywhere. I got this job through some networking I had done over the past six years. I know multiple individuals who have been on the job market for many more years than I and have still not found anything.
