Hi everyone, I'm starting the job search just as all of you. It's exciting but nerve wracking as well! I have several job fairs lined up and multiple opportunities for interviews opening up. I have no doubt that I will be offered several positions, not because I'm cocky but the area I live in is desperate for teachers and I feel confident in my abilities. As a first year teacher, what is the protocol when you have several offers but are waiting for the "one" you want? For example, if you are offered your first position but have several other interviews set up, what do you say? "I have several other interviews this week, I cannot give you an answer today. I can give you the final word by this Friday. " But what if the other job fairs or interviews don't start for almost a month afterwards???
