    So what is everyone;s game plan for the week?

    I checked my local paper today (which is the best source ive found for jobs) and there was not one teaching position to apply for this week. :( I did find an aide position so I will be applying for that. I also intend to call and follow up on the 7 applications i sent out last week. Tomorrow I have a 2 prof dev workshops to go to pretty much all morning/afternoon (what can I say, I love learning). And I will also spend a significant amount of time scouring all the district's websites that post jobs online. Yeah, this is pretty much what I do every week lol and will continue to do throughout the summer! I have to say though, I;m pretty bummed that there was not even ONE teaching position for me to apply for in the paper this week :unsure: that makes me super nervous!!

    My plan is to keep checking all of the district websites and send e-mails to P in one county for anticipated vacancies.

    Also tomorrow I am calling two P to follow up.

    I'm also going to be waiting to hear about both of my interviews last week.

    I've kind of stopped looking and I'm just waiting. I think I've pretty much applied everywhere and I'm giving up. I think I have one lead though, but who knows what I'll be doing in August.

    I haven't done anything job searching related in about a month or so. I need to get back on it though; school doesn't start around here until after Labor Day so I have still have some time to get stuff to more districts.

    I tried printing three applications last night but found I had no ink left in my printer. I have no money to buy another one right now so I'm going to be emailing the principals I would have sent things to.

    1) Check district websites daily-keep log for unemployment office

    2) Take certification test to add yet another certification

    3) Update applications to hopefully reflect new certfication

    4) Visit with family

    My plans have changed - I now have to get ready for an interview Thursday afternoon! I'm excited because it's a reading position and that's what I really want to do but I got the feeling they are interviewing a lot of people and it's over an hour from where I live. This will be my sixth interview - please let this be the one! I'm losing so much money taking time off for these interviews - I know, completely worth it, but tell that to my landlord, lol.
