Transition from K-8 to High School - what are the odds?

Hi! I am a school social worker who has worked primarily in K-8 schools for the past 10 years. I would love to transition to high school, but so far I've gotten one interview.

My elementary experience has been primarily in an urban setting, where I have worked with kids going through (typically) high school aged issues - suicidal ideation, cutting, drug use, gang involvement, etc.

Is there anything that I should do, inparticular, to highlight my skills? Do high schools hire people from elementary settings? Is there a bias?

Any thoughts are welcome and appreciated!
