Hi! I'm sorry you're having such a hard time. I currently work in Washington, and I don't see any openings for sw positions, pretty much ever. In my old district in Hawaii, they had only 2 sw for every complex (about 2 hs, 2 middle, 7-8 elem and several charter k-12 or 6-12 or k-8). The positions never opened.

I'm not sure what the outlook is at other locations. To be honest, I'd never seen a sw at school until I moved to Hawaii. When I worked in NM, I know we didn't have them.

It sounds like it's definitely not you! Not sure how much of a consolation that is, but I think the fact that you landed an interview while competing with hundreds of applicants speaks to your strong background. I hope you are able to find something!
