I promise y'all I'm still here. I have been super busy with job hunting and teaching UB. I promise for a real update soon. I have yet to find a job. :( But I'm just trying to stay positive. I know that God has a plan for me, so I'm trying not to worry.
I have been so busy that I haven't even read any of my blog buddies. I hope everyone is doing alright. I will post a real update soon. So sad about MJ, FF, and EM.

Screening Interview

Tomorrow I have a screening interview with a school system. I am soo nervous! I'm terrified I'll freeze up and not answer questions the way they want them answered. I really would love this job...there are two possible openings. I can't even figure out what I am going to wear either (I am stressing out)! I am thinking about this little combo...

I've had the skirt for awhile now and I have yet to wear it and I thought that it might be alright for tomorrow's interview. What do y'all think? Oh and of course I'll keep the jewelry simple with my pearl earrings and Pandora bracelet.

I got a call yesterday from a school system in WV they are going to post more openings Thursday and they want me to fax in their bid sheets. I really want the job I am interviewing for tomorrow, if I had my choice (there is about a $4,000 difference in pay, between the two).
I also have orientation tomorrow at 8 a.m. for my "month" long English teaching job with Upward Bound. I am really nervous because I will be teaching high school kids, which I have never done. I am so used to the little ones I don't know what I am going to do.
I better go figure out what I am going to wear for that interview.
Let's hope I get past this interview and sail on through to get the job. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!

Job Hunting

There is not a high demand for elementary teachers in this area. Which isn't a good thing for me. I have been filling out application after application. Yesterday I dropped off some at a couple school boards in the area. One told me that they would put me on the list for a screening interview! :)
I've also mailed out some applications. I called today to resubmit my app for some newly posted positions and they said all they needed was a copy for my certificate. I asked if I should mail it to the same place I did my applications and they said I could fax it in (which I took as a good sign!).
My plan is to begin working on my masters and get a few years of teaching under my belt, before packing up and heading south! So I am more than ready to get this show on the road!
Hopefully I will hear something soon! Any of y'all have advice for finding a job right out of college?
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
