    Hi everyone! This happened a few weeks ago!

    What grade and/or subject? Preschool in a private elementary school
    How long have you been trying? I was employed this year and had been looking casually for a better job for a few months.
    How many resumes did you send out? Just sent out a few resumes this year. But it was a long process the last 2 years.
    How many interviews or job fairs?
    What general geographic area? NYC

    Although I think Preschool is a little young for me, it's a great opportunity in a lovely school. I'm hoping things go well and I'll be able to move up to K, 1st or 2nd!

    What grade and/or subject? self-contained autism in a public middle school
    How long have you been trying? I started actively trying around the beginning of April
    How many resumes did you send out? I applied to three districts. My "specialty" is so unique that there weren't many opportunities to apply to.
    How many interviews or job fairs? Had two screening interviews, one phone interview and one demo lesson.
    What general geographic area? PA

    I received two job offers today: one for an interim position teaching 4th grade and one for permanent position teaching 6th grade language arts. Naturally, I accepted the 6th grade position! :)

    I just graduated in May, and this will be my first classroom ever. I interviewed 12 times with 5 different districts in West Tennessee. I emailed every elementary and middle school principal in those districts with my resume, philosophy, Praxis scores, and transcripts. I also received two more interview requests today, but I am not going to bother with them since I have already signed my contract.

    EMAILING WORKS!!!

    What grade and/or subject? 8th Grade Physical Science
    How long have you been trying? About 3 months
    How many resumes did you send out? I applied to one district, and to a program coordinator position at a non-profit I worked at during my credentialing.
    How many interviews or job fairs? I went to a job fair a few months back and did two prelim interviews there. Only the district I applied to later emailed me back encouraging me to apply. After I applied, I had two interviews from the same school, and an interview offer from another school, but they rescinded it when the district filled the position for them without their knowledge. I just got the offer from the school that interviewed me twice.
    What general geographic area? East Bay, California

    What grade and/or subject? 4th grade
    How long have you been trying? Since March for this year. Since summer of 2010 for a permanent position.
    How many resumes did you send out? Lots, lol
    How many interviews or job fairs? 2 real and 4 phone interviews (this year)
    What general geographic area? Colorado

    I have been trying to get a permanent job since 2010. In that time I took a full time, hourly intervention job and then an INR this past year. I was shocked to get the offer since I thought I botched the interview.

    Good luck to those still trying! Never give up hope!
