I am getting my secondary mathematics certificate. My friend is a student teacher in a district here in NY and got really lucky and had an interview. Guess what the first thing they told her? "We received 1,700 resumes for this position and we are interviewing 6." How can anyone get a job in this market? It's absolutely crazy, especially in a subject that used to once be a shortage: mathematics. It's not anymore, though - even our professors are admitting that it's not really a shortage anymore. What are we supposed to do to differentiate ourselves from the other 1,699 resumes???? Send a single resume in a huge 4 feet by 4 feet by 4feet box?
