I've got to tell you... this job interview process is draining. Every day I wake, dress up, and try to stay peppy and positive. I drive to the interview, lay myself on the line with the incredibly annoying questions usually asked, then drive home after being told "we'll be in touch." Many sound promising, yet an offer hasn't yet been extended. It's driving me insane!
I can only hope that by doing this many interviews it's a sign that I will have some choices. A friend of mine got an offer at a REALLY good pay and the school sounds wonderful. I am so happy for her! I put in an application with the same district, so maybe we'll be able to teach together. I've had a phone interview with the same district and now have a second interview and teaching sample scheduled for Tuesday. Whooo Hoooo!
This is not easy on the self-esteem, let me tell you. I guess as a kid job interviews were easy. I left the place being offered a position and was scheduled to meet with the HR department to find out when I started work. I suppose professional hiring isn't quite the same as choosing a grocery bagger or a cashier. I know I'm just being impatient, but I'm ready to be done already. I NEED stability and the comfort of knowing I have a job set up.
