No job offer for me from my last interview. They chose someone else.

I've never seen the job market this bad. It's so depressing. I don't even have any other possibilities right now. Sigh!......

I'm so sorry! I wish I could say something really encouraging, but I don't have a clue.

Thanks for your words of support. I can't believe that you didn't get interviews for any of those jobs! Moreover, I can't believe there are that many jobs that you can apply for. The job market is much worse here. Our state teachers' union posts all of the openings in districts all of over the state. I live in a small state and most towns have a school district or some towns combine to form regional school districts. There are 169 towns in CT and there are only 166 teaching jobs in the entire state!

I can't really work in the other certification I have. I have deaf ed certification. There are NO jobs in that field, plus, I haven't done that job in 20yrs! I am considering on line teaching, though. Dh does it. He works for two different on line schools to supplement our income. If nothing comes along soon, I'll definitely go that route. Other things I'm considering are working for one of the companies that supply library resources, such as Gale or Follett.

I just wish I knew what the future held. This uncertainty is just awful!

PS I just talked to DS about this and found out some info. about who they hired. It turns out the committee compared everyone to the librarian that just left. (She didn't get tenure.) They wanted someone different from her so they picked a person who is a long time classroom teacher with only one year of library experience. Apparently they thought having a real librarian in the library position was a problem! How stupid is that?!
