    Pre-K

    What grade and/or subject? Special Ed/general Ed pre-k class
    How long have you been trying? Since March when I found out my school was not renewing my contract :(
    How many resumes did you send out? Way over 50 between three states- NY, CT and FL
    How many interviews or job fairs? One job fair and about 6 interviews
    What general geographic area? CT

    I will be moving for the third summer in a row for a job.... I hope this will be the last time I move until we move to FL. I accepted the position but I honestly wanted UPK which is 4-5 year olds only. This position is for a integrated classroom of 2.9-5 years of age. I have been teaching this age group for 6 years, but I am so nervous I will not be successful with the identified students. Last school year was my first year teaching in a sped environment and it was not a success. However I'm hoping this school district will be a better fit for me. I'm so grateful I was able to find another job after not being renewed from my last. :haha:: I was so scared, but I kept trudging along and kept positive :)

    Job

    What grade and/or subject? EC Resource
    How long have you been trying? 2 months this year
    How many resumes did you send out? Completed school district's online application service plus approximately 15-20 resumes
    How many interviews or job fairs?No job fairs, probably at least 10 interviews?

    What general geographic area? North Carolina (Piedmont)

    I already had a job in a school district here but was looking to go into Special Education. I was on the transfer list in my county and had interviews with schools there but ultimately another nearby school district was more willing to give me a chance.

    What grade and/or subject? 11-12? AP Calculus
    How long have you been trying? 1 Day
    How many resumes did you send out? 1
    How many interviews or job fairs? 1
    What general geographic area? Texas

    I already had a job so I wasn't really looking. My friend told me about a job fair if I wanted to switch teaching assignments from Middle School to High School. It seemed like a last minute job fair for the district to fill positions. I wasn't really interested but I tagged along. It was two hours long, we got there and I walked around for about an hour. Everyone was rushing and waiting in lines to get interviews. I didn't like how there were about 5-10 people trying to get one position. Too competitive for me. I said I would do one interview because my friend threatened to not take me home if I didn't. Interviewed at one of two schools that had a position for Calculus, sat down with the principal for about 10 minutes and they offered me the job on the spot :cool:
    I must kill it during the interviews because there were about 5 people before me that interviewed for that position and the 3 heartbroken people behind me. I felt bad because I didn't go there with the intent of trying to get a job, I let them know a position would open at my previous school since I was leaving.
    I also applied and interviewed just once to get my previous job.
    2/2 on interviews!

    It was sad telling my school I was working with that I was leaving so late into summer but it is what it is.

    What grade and/or subject? 2nd grade/gen ed
    How long have you been trying? 2 months
    How many resumes did you send out? 5
    How many interviews or job fairs? 1 interview and 1 job fair
    What general geographic area? Southern US

    I am new to these boards and have only been lurking since last Thursday when I got called for my very first interview!!! I had it on Friday and was offered the job this morning!!!! I am so excited :)

    I graduated in Dec of last year and subbed a lot at the last school I interned at during this past semester. I was told that they were going to be hiring an Early Childhood person for the coming up school year so I put in my resume but never heard anything from them :(

    I also put in my resume at a school where I had worked at as a teacher's aide for 7 years and never even got called for an interview :mad: So last Wed I put in my resume at 3 different schools. The one called me on Thurs for an interview on Friday and I was told I would hear from them one way or the other by Wed.

    I still can't believe that I got the job!!!! I really think that reading through the interview question threads on this board helped!!!! The Principal and Superintendent that interviewed me both told me I did a wonderful job at the end of the interview. I told them that I shouldn't admit it but that was my very first interview ever for a teaching job!

    I hope that all of you out there looking/waiting for a job offer/interviewing get a job soon!!!!!

    What grade and/or subject? 7th and 8th grade ELA and SS at a private school
    How long have you been trying? Since May
    How many resumes did you send out? A million
    How many interviews or job fairs? 20+ interviews (it's been a very busy few months!!!)
    What general geographic area? MA

    While I am super excited to finally have a job offer, I am SO beyond nervous about this position. I will be teaching SS in addition to ELA, and I have no experience with SS. Also, I have to basically revamp the curriculum. The director is looking for someone to come in with new, fresh ideas and put their stamp on it. I can do it, but I am so nervous!!! Especially being the only teacher for these grades/subjects! Eeek!

    I am trying to stay positive and look at it as great experience and an exciting opportunity!

    Plus I don't have to move, which is great!

    Whew, glad this process is over!

    (Can I use any more exclamation points? Lol)
