I am so incredibly sad right now!! So, last week, I had 3 phone interviews in one day. They were for a division in VA where I had visited and really liked. I live in PA. Anyway, all 3 of them went very well... I especially loved talking to the first principal, I thought her school sounded wonderful, the perfect fit for me. I was so excited. The day ended with me on a high... I was proud of myself for doing so well on the interviews. So they told me that the process was, they needed to make a decision by the end of the week (it was Thurs), they would send their reccommendations to HR, and then HR would call and offer positons to whichever schools wanted me (if any). So I got a call from HR telling me that 2 of the 3 principals wanted me!!!!! I was getting an offer..... BUT then they asked about my certification. I have my PA cert. I was told by several people in other states that since I was applying in many states, that I could just apply with my PA cert, and then once I got hired, I could get that state's cert and testing done. So, that is what I did. Since I was applying in 5 other states besides PA, I wasnt going to get 5 certs and take all their tests since I didnt know where I would end up getting a job. Ya know? But since these 3 schools are all Title 1 schools, I had to have my VA cert and testing done BEFORE I could be hired. I told them that I would do it right away, but they said that it had to be done before being hired. So, they can't hire me. I am so upset right now.
