A few interviews, no job offers. Lots of happy engagement pictures/my life is awesome posts on social media have me down (I took myself off of social media today for this reason).

I don't want advice, just support if that's ok.

I have also contemplated turning off Facebook for the time being. We just have to remember that people put their best foot forward regarding posts/pictures on social media. It's not an accurate portrayal of someone's life.


Good thoughts to you.

I'm sorry things are hard. Taking yourself off social media is a good idea. I'm taking a break from Facebook. Looking at it just stresses me out sometimes, and I haven't missed it.

It's a highlight reel, not reality TV.

Sorry you're bummed out. <3

I feel you, Violet4. I've had interviews since March and STILL no offers. Public, private, charter, virtual-nada. It's no fun. But you never know! Sometimes, principals "click" with you, but can't offer you a position then because of district politics, lack of specific certification, funding, in-district transfers, testing, etc. None of these reasons has to do with you or your application.

You could always send your information directly to principals whose schools most align with what you desire and/or schools that align most with your cert areas/experience.

Your application may just be stowed away for a bit until the ideal position opens up. I had that happen this month for a position I applied to in JANUARY (and with an app I never bothered to update!). I've been hired in June in the past, and so have many, many other teachers.

Keep your chin up. We understand what you are going through and we are here for you<3
