Thanks for the tip, I forgot about Federal Way. Donít think it is a good district and itís below Tacoma, so I think they might have trouble filling the jobs. Everyone in WA either want to be able to...

I always got the advice to stay away from charter schools, unless you know someone who works there and can give you inside info. They work you to death and you donít have a union, and itís usually...

Only one ms is hiring and it’s ranked dead last in the state. I guess they aren’t as hard up as I was led to believe.

Nah, Iíll do it. Didnít ask about Skype, I think they want the face to face. Most of the places Iím applying to have no appeal as far as livability goes, but the market around me is bad.

How far has a school asked you to travel for an interview?

Ok, on the one hand Iím glad I am getting some actual interviews, but Iím hoping more people would use FaceTime calls or Skype. A school wants me to drive 3 hours for an interview. Iím not sure if...

I feel you. All of the schools I subbed at are budget cutting, so any networking I had is wasted. Preparing to move out of state I guess.

Digital interviews, are these the trend now?

Just did my first one. I know Greyhound girl has said they were horrible. Itís way worse than talking to a person because I think they expect you to not say um, yeah, like, etc. Filming yourself and...

Thanks for the responses. I can see why they have demo lessons, but I still think it is ridiculous that they put me in a reading intervention room. They should put me in the regular 7th or 8th grade...

I don’t have an answer but unpaid orientation seems common. I have done two and they only took a few hours, mostly it was to bring in ID for payroll. They also didn’t make you come in again the next...
