I'm wondering how different states/counties/districts notify of postings and then how do you apply. Here in Ohio the Dept. of Education has a site that some schools use to post openings and you can fill out basic application information and apply through the site. But... most schools have a separate application that they may or may not reference in this posting. Then there are a few consortium districts that have a central website to apply through and finally, there's the old "pick out an alphabetical listing and run through them periodically" which can get pretty tiring and confusing. I think that having 1 central state-wide application would be great for us job seekers but obviously doesn't provide the district with everything they'd like. I've applied for postings in a few other states like NC which has a central site. I'm just wondering how many of those schools actually accept the state's application or if you have to also apply specifically to them. Make sense? If not, you're not alone. I try to explain to my family that just because there is a button to "apply online" it's not that easy as many districts want you to send in additional information or fill out interview questions. Oh the "joy" of job-seeking.
