    How long have you been trying? I started subbing fall semester of SY 2007, had my content exam last Feb, started applying last week of March, and currently under an ACP.
    How many resumes did you send out?around 20++. Some resumes I had to send out twice to school districts. I get paranoid when I don't hear from them and it seemed to have worked for me because they've seen how much I wanted to get into the district, and I had the chance to improve my resume (and they kind of disregarded the first one)
    How many interviews or job fairs? 5 interviews, 3 of which are with the same school district, 1 job fair.
    What general geographic area?Texas
    And of course what grade and/or subject? Elem. Math

    I had my first *real* interview today for next school year. I was walking out and the principal came running after me and offered it to before I left! I'm really excited, I hope it's the place I'm meant to be at. It's about 25-30 minute drive, shorter than the 45-1 hour I was previously traveling this year. Husbands parents live in this district and it's where he grew up, so hopefully we'll move there and make this city our new home as well within next couple of years. I'm nervous, I hope I'm making the right decision. They haven't come out with their new pay schedule, but it should be similar to what I made last year.

    I do have to thank all the posters of the interveiwing questioning forum. I have been reading through those questions and answers every day for 5 days to prepare for this interview. Thanks for all your helpful suggestions.

    How long have you been trying? Resigned from current position in March, been looking since then.
    How many resumes did you send out? Applied to about 5 districts. Sent resumes to directly to about 15 principals.
    How many interviews or job fairs? Went to two job fairs, had mini interview at one. Had only one real interview and got an offer. Go me!
    What general geographic area? Suburb north of Dallas, Texas.
    And of course what grade and/or subject? 7th grade Math ! :2up:

    Good luck to everyone else still trying. Prepare backwards and forwards with your thoughts to possible questions, and impress them with info. you about their school and programs.

    How long have you been trying? This year since about February, last year I kind of tried but was offered a graduate assistantship, so I decided to focus on my master's degree and gave up the job search for a year.

    How many resumes did you send out? About eighty resumes and/or applications.

    How many interviews or job fairs? One large job fair where I had four interviews with school districts from around the country, one district job fair where I had interviews with two elementary school principals, a pre-screening interview and a phone interview (which landed me my job).

    What general geographic area? Northeastern Colorado, but I looked in many different areas of the country. Last week I went and checked out the school and area and I loved it there!

    And of course what grade and/or subject? 7th and 8th grade math, which I'm so excited about! I love math!

    Good luck to everyone who is still searching for a job!
