It’s been a difficult month. I’ve applied for many jobs, interviewed for just a few of them, and have been turned down for all the ones for which I’ve interviewed. I’ve even applied for some outside the teaching field, and still can’t find anything. I have to say that I feel very frustrated and defeated right now. I’m trying to feel optimistic about the whole job situation, but I never dreamed it would be so hard to find a job after college.
At this point, I’m prepared to substitute teach in the fall for a few different districts. It’s not ideal, and I am not entirely excited about the idea. I know that subbing can perhaps open some doors I might not be able to get otherwise, but I guess the idea of no one wanting me full-time is a bit frustrating.
I’m taking the WEST-E for Mid-Level Humanities on Saturday. I’m nervous about taking it. I hope I know enough from teaching and studying that it will be something not too difficult. Other than that, there isn’t much going on right now. Cross your fingers for me, readers.
