    So I've been searching for a job since April and I've had a few interviews but no luck quite yet. I have two different questions, your opinion and input will be helpful and appreciated.
    1. I had an interview on Monday for a position at a middle school I would love to work at but for a position that I didn't think would be the best fit for me. The principal called and left a message stating that they decided to go in another direction with the position but if there is anything that I am qualified for to please apply and they will try to get me in. Well today a Middle School Language Arts position opened at the same school, do you think I have a shot?

    2.I received a call Friday for an interview for a position I am not certified yet to teach because I have to retake my exam. I plan to re-take the exam the first full week of August, which is the first time I will be able to take the exam again. I'm concerned because school starts the following week, anyone have any advice?

    1. Sounds promising, I would definitely apply and also call the principal and let him know you're applying and that you would love for him to "get you in" for that position!
    2. Go on the interview anyways and explain the situation. If they're interested in you they'll wait.

    Good luck!!

    1. Definitely sounds promising! Apply and call the principal. Prepare for the call and give a few examples of why you'd be a great fit (incorporate something they highlighted in the interview if you can).
    2. Go on the interview, you never know. They may be able to hire you and give you the school year to pass the test if it is hard to fill.

    Having a principal tell you to apply for openings you'd be interested in and they will try to get you in is VERY GOOD!! Having someone who already knows you and has interviewed you tell you that is a good sign. Do It!!!
