    My career center originally said to start sending out applications late February/early March. They are now saying they can be sent in late January. I don't want to send them so early that they get lost, but I also don't want to miss opportunities. When did you send yours out?

    Not sure if it varies by region, but I am from upstate NY. TIA!

    I would say you can send you resume out as soon as a position you want is advertised. Some positions advertised in my local paper won't accept applications after Feb. 9.

    I don't know about where you are living, but here in Maine, we send out packets once a position is posted.

    I will be sending out applications to all of the districts within an hour's distance from me. I'm in a very tought market for teachers. Most schools get over 800 applicants and interview 5-7! A lot of schools here don't even post their positions (they don't have to, I guess).

    I would check with each district (they usually have an HR email and # posted online) and ask them. I did that last year w/ about 7 districts. Some took them starting Jan. 1st, others February or March, and others not until they have posted positions. They are so varied! Good luck! :)
