I just graduated with my masters in English Composition. I've found a handful of jobs to apply for, but none have even gotten back to me. Is this fairly common when trying to find something in the winter- it seems like maybe they DO have people in mind already, or else they just don't want someone who would be alternative certification. There's nothing I can do about that, and I need something like... yesterday... as subbing isn't going to nearly pay the bills, unless I get a job every day. I guess I just need some hope. Am I insane trying to find a job this winter? Or is it just going to be a slog finding something and I should just hope for LOTS of subbing to get me through till the summer, when I figure there WILL be some more options available?
