I know that there have been a number of threads that touch on this topic, and I have contributed to some of them. But I thought it might be worth a shot to try to create a centralized thread for those of us who are applying for jobs out-of-state, or at least at a distance, to share our stories and ideas. I'm in Wisconsin, where I was recently laid off from a corporate education position. My discipline is secondary English (I've also taught history and social studies). My BA is in American Studies from Yale; my MAT is from Boston University. I've got current high school and middle school English certifications or statements of eligibility in North Carolina, Texas, and Florida. I've also been looking at Arizona and Nevada, and I'm in the Teacher Candidate Pool for the New Orleans Recovery School District. Right now, I seem to be getting more nibbles from Arizona than anywhere else. Texas districts seem to be hiring, but they also seem to be getting hundreds or thousands of applicants for each open position; I haven't figured out how to get their attention in Texas. Recruiting seems to be largely on hold throughout North Carolina and Florida. I apply for positions through state websites, regional websites, district websites, Teachers-Teachers.com, and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) website. I also look at the Education America and Top School Jobs websites to learn about openings. The NAIS schools are a mystery to me, by the way. My credentials would seem to align well with private schools, and the NAIS online application procedure is slick and well-designed -- but even though I've applied to 25 schools through NAIS, I have yet to get much reaction from any of them. I'm at 99 applications altogether this year. What's you distance job search story? Have you had any success yet? Keep the thread alive.
