    I signed a contingency agreement in April at a job fair. I just graduated yesterday, so I had been kinda searching since February just seeing what was ou there. I sent emails to a bunch of schools in the Charlotte, NC school area asking about jobs for next year, and set up interviews with 4 of them, and they each got resumes. Then I went to the job fair in April and visited 3 of those schools and got a job at the one that was my first choice. I got hired K-3 and the principal is going to let me know in the next month or so which grade exactly.

    Ok, I'm going to post. I was going to wait until tomorrow, but I can't! I got an offer today! WHEEEEE! The one school that DIDN'T string me along called this afternoon and offered me a third grade position. I unofficially accepted the offer, as I still want to make sure my husband is 100% on board (it's a bit of a drive), but I can't imagine turning it down. It almost seemed too easy, as I went in on Thursday for the interview and lesson, and they let me know today. The other two schools are going on 8 weeks and 6 weeks. Their loss, I guess! So put me down for 3rd grade, and keep the faith, guys. Sometimes it happens when you least expect it to.

    How many resumes, interviews, ect: Too many to even think about-probably about $500 worth of portfolios, color copies and vinyl folders. I'm so done!
    Area-N. California, private school

    I was recently offered a Kindergarten position for the 2008-2009. I applied to many districts. I only heard back from one. Luckily, this was my dream district!

    Good Luck to everyone :)

    How long have you been trying? I graduated in January, I was immediately offered a granted Title 1 position. I have decided to relocate. In February, I started to search school websites, PA-educator, and PAreap. These are two teaching job sites. I immediately started sending out applications.

    How many resumes did you send out? I sent out about 10resumes/applications to schools in my area.

    How many interviews or job fairs? 1 interview total. I attended 4 interviews for the same district. 1- 10 minute screening. 2- writing sample/30 minute interview. 3- taught a 20 minute lesson. 4 - interview with the Superintendent/Asst. Superintendent.

    What general geographic area? Pennsylvania

    And of course what grade and/or subject? Kindergarten

    Seriously, stg-I'm praying for you, too. Am I remembering correctly that you hope to hear something tomorrow on your interview? (my memory is terrible, and I'm still relatively new to the boards).
