I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.

Hi 🐠🐠. I’d like to hear about your success stories applying to tech company jobs only through their career websites. I’m feeling discouraged as I have not had much luck without referrals. How hard is it to get tour resume noticed in a sea of applicants? Do you have to apply super early? Is there a formula to success? Thanks!!

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall?

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
