Hi all! I am new to the A to Z teacher stuff site, and look forward to reading and posting on the forum! So I graduated in December and was miraculously able to find a long term subbing position for a maternity/paternity leave for a teacher couple that lasts until the end of the school year. I love it here, but unfortunately they have no positions open for next year so I am now on the job hunt. That being said, I have sent a TON of applications thus far, to a good variety of districts near me. Now we wait. My question/concern is when do, at this point in the year, do they actually go though applicants and start calling for interviews? School is still in session around here. Do schools typically start interview processes once school is over and summer begins? Or does it just vary from district to district? I am both very nervous and anxious about finding a job for the new upcoming school year. I know I have a great resume for being a recent grad, but I just don't know. I know patience is the key here but gosh I am just waiting to get anything at all about interviews! (plus I want to move out from my parents' place ASAP; so knowing where I get a job would be helpful in the apartment search) What are some of your experiences being a first time/new teacher and finding a job? Also, any tips for the interview process? Thanks all! I appreciate it!
