Hey guys! I'm currently working as a longterm substitute in a great district (I worked TWO maternity leaves this year, which made my resume look a million times better ). Right now I'm in the process of applying for full time positions. NJ is very competitive so I'll be searching all over the state. I'm perfectly willing to relocate if it means a full time position is waiting for me. However, I'm not sure what to do if I have multiple interview(s) far away (2 hours or more), because, as a longterm sub, I don't have sick or personal days to use for job interviews. I know I can always ask for coverage 7 and 8th period, but feel this might look dodgy if I have a slew of interviews (like I did last year) and need a lot of time off. Do you think some districts are willing to conduct phone interviews first, especially for a screening interview, and then in-person interviews if you make the cut? Any suggestions? I'm sure districts run into this "problem" all the time. Thanks!
