Job Search Updates (Not Good News)

I’m really bummed out right now. I’ve had tons of interviews and they’ve all gone well, but I haven’t had a single job offer. I knew this would be a rough year to apply for jobs with the district reorganization and with new contract negotiations, but I didn’t think it would be this tough. School starts in two weeks and I’m still looking. Granted, I had an interview with Hampden on Thursday, but I haven’t heard from them about round 2. I should have by now. And I had a second interview for Oak Hill HS (great school, come to find out) today and I should hear from them any time now. I know I have a good shot at Oak Hill, but what if it doesn’t pan out? The only jobs on servingschools.com right now are Ed Tech jobs that will not pay enough to pay living expenses and loan repayments, but it would be an education job. I’d have to get a part-time evening job and work 50 or more hours a week to make ends meet. That’s going to suck.
So with all of this, I haven’t been a whole lot of fun lately. I don’t even have the energy to knit or read. It’s that bad.
