    I forgot about this thread and posted my own, but I will post on here too if that is alright.

    What grade and/or subject? 4h grade
    How long have you been trying? This was the beginning of my job hunt this year (YAY)
    How many resumes did you send out? ONE! (I had applied online to some other jobs, but was hired into a full time position at the school I currently work at two days a week. Since jobs just started opening up around here, I was planning a mass mail out next week if I didn't get this one.)
    How many interviews or job fairs? Two.
    What general geographic area? Wisconsin

    YAY!!! Congrats to everyone else on this thread! What a wonderful feeling. I've never been hired before mid-July. Time to breath a sigh of relief.

    I would like to add myself to this list - when I have a new job! I am leaving this position and just starting to apply, which is really hard and makes my heart sink. Wish me luck!

    My husband and I currently have jobs, but are wanting to relocate. We both had interviews last week within the same district. We should hear something back within 7-10 days. I am worried because the move is 8 hours away so we both have to be offered the job in order to go. Wish us luck!!!

    This is a huge number, especially with school still in session. Remember that there will be a major wave of job openings when current teachers decide to retire or go to another position. There is still plenty of time!

    What grade and/or subject? 4th grade
    How long have you been trying? Since December
    How many resumes did you send out? over 80!
    How many interviews or job fairs? job fairs - zero. interviews- 5 with 3 different schools. 2 were pre-emptive back in Jan. 2 were follow ups to those. 1 was the other offer.
    What general geographic area? Chicago


    I've been waiting to post this for so long! if anyone has been following my posts you'll know that I held on a great offer so i could interview with my dream school. I got an offer for my dream grade level there hours after the interview. I'm so glad I held because when I called the other P back to decline she asked what school and said "good luck there... you'll need it!" so mean! and not the type of woman I want to work for. Any way on a happy note... when does this all sink in? I've already shed some tears over achieving my life long goal. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all who helped and to all the other posters who asked questions I had and some I never thought to ask!

    If you're still looking DONT GIVE UP! I heard absolutely nothing for 4 months and now this.
