Wanted to start a new thread for this, although it kind of piggybacks my other post. Since I'm considering applying out of state to find a job, I wanted to find out how to go about getting a phone interview? I guess I'm worried about districts even looking at/responding to my application when they see I'm out of state. Several people posted about how they've had phone interviews for out of state positions. How did you get one? Is it just implied that you will need one when you apply from out of state? Is this something I need to request? Guess I'm pretty much clueless to how all this will work! I keep imagining that I'll get a call wanting me to come in for an interview and when I tell them I can't come in because I'm thousands of miles away, they will move on. This is my biggest worry and what's holding me back from applying. I'd gladly apply to states like Georgia where someone posted that there are a lot of SPED openings, if I knew that I'd have a chance from so far away! Any info/feedback on this would be appreciated! Thanks to all who have already answered and given me info in my previous post. I'm really glad to have found you guys here!
