I just graduated in May and I've been looking for a teaching job. I must have applied to well over 100 jobs and haven't gotten a single call back to interview...NOTHING. I know my references are good and I have great letters of recommendation, so I don't know what the problem is. I'm getting discouraged and depressed because the summer is ending, and I know if I don't hear something by August, then I probably won't have a job. I'm also upset because the other student teacher who taught at the same school I was at got offered a second grade job, and I never even got asked for an interview. I know my reviews were better than hers. And I even know she had got written up for inappropriate dress one day. I just don't get it. Can anyone offer me some advice? Teaching is my passion and I'm afraid I'm going to wind up having to get a lousy retail job if I don't find a teaching job.
