    I just got a call to go in for my sixth interview. I have been interviewing since the beginning of May. I don't know how many you have had, but I know of someone who had 11 interviews before they got a job.

    I got one offer..but it was for a very low paying private school that was very far away.
    I'm hoping I get a job soon though!!!

    I have been looking since January (this term, I'm just repeating the process from the previous school year) and have sent out 15 employment packs as best I can remember. I got 7 interviews out of my efforts. There were many others that I could have applied for but were all much further away than the ones I applied for. If I had been more centralized in our state's sub-district, I would have applied for many, many more. So far, no luck. Well, that's not true...I think I may be getting an offer from the one I interviewed with yesterday. And, quite possibly, the one I interviewed with today.

    I subbed for three years and had... 5 or 6 interviews, I think, before I got hired. Good luck!

    The first time I looked it took 2 interviews, the second time ot took 3 (2 different school corporations) interviews. The second time I looked for a job I had applications on file with both school corporations, so I just updated my info and sent a cover letter and resume to every open position. Overall this year I was looking for about 3 or 4 months.

    Straight out of college I had only 2 interviews before I was hired in the district I subbed in for 6 months.

    This time around, after being a SAHM for 3 years, I've had 6 interviews and no offers as of yet.
