About this same time (beginning of June) during the last 7 years, I usually have already applied to 50 jobs by now. This year, I've only applied to 3 jobs (and I'm talking Special Ed. jobs too). What is going on in western PA? Is this just the reality that jobs are even harder to come by??? One of the special ed jobs I applied for is a dream-I have a lot of experience. I applied in Feb and theytook the posting down last month. I'm hoping no one interviewed for it and got the job and I still have a chance. I've checked board meetings and didn't see any names for the job!
