(I feel like we need one of these for this year since the last one ended in September and it's a new year. Besides, I didn't want to hog all the attention with a thread about just my gripes. ) Ever feel like you need you need a club pack of tums? I know I do. Here's a place where we can post our general vents and frustrations about job searching. A place where we can post our support and motivation to keep at it. (Borrowed from the other thread.) I began contacting schools near the end of February. I have sent cover letters and resumes to approximately 100 schools. I followed up most of those with emails. Some of the schools I've contacted a third time in response to a particular opening posted on their website. An you know what? Not one stinkin' interview. Not one single response from a school that actually has an opening. The few responses I've gotten from principals usually go something like, "We have no positions at the current time, but good luck in your search." No, I will not stop looking. But some days are harder than others.
