I graduated may of 04, and we got married in july. We both got job offers a week before the wedding, on opposite sides of the state, and took his (if you're living on one salary, take the one that's bigger by 18K). What with the honeymoon, apt hunting and move, it was Aug before I started looking around here again. The last year's been rough, away from all family and friends, working at home as an item writer, and looking for a job. I've subbed in our district a whopping 4 days. I've sent out replies to about 20 postings, and another 10 or so unsolicited applications. Last year after we moved, I had one interview. I've only had one so far this spring (I didn't get the job). I have excellent qualifications (top of my class, recognition of excellence in like everything, willing to coach/advise anything, etc) but feel like every letter I sent out is getting ignored. How do you get a job if you can't even get an interview? And I've already done every "tip" out there. Hubby thinks I'm nuts cause the pressure and lonliness (no friends in cleveland) are getting to me, and I'm a little flaky (read: cry for no reason) these days. I find myself checking all my "sites" several times a day for job postings. On top of that, I don't even know when I should start worrying, it's not like my friends are in the same boat like we were in our last year of school. It's even worse this time around too since if I don't teach this year my cert. expires and I'll have to take more classes. Am I nuts to be this worried yet? Any advice on how to be less so?
