Hello!! Teacher in the making in California. ( I have my MSTC) and trying to find a teaching job!! Any recommendations? I am in a 5 month substitute job and could use any and all advice. A lot of the times I apply on Edjoin but can’t get an interview, when I have people look at my resume they say it looks really good.

You have to be more present. Things like rejoin are very passive. Getting a job is about relationships. Go old fashioned. Dress up in a suit, march into that office and hand over your resume. A resume attached to a smile, greeting, and a handshake is much more effective that a profile online. At the very least call the school and talk to the principal. Tell them you’re looking and ask if there are openings. If they still request and electronic resume, you’ve also still given them something to remember you by.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. I've had back to back long term substitute positions for the last 5 years and can't seem to get a full time position in any of the local school districts. I've applied via Edjoin & only ever got 2 interviews within my district (to no avail). I've talked to/emailed principals in my district, & even pestered my principal (under her direction!!) when she was hiring classroom teachers. Needless to say, I too would welcome any advice. **I do wish you luck in your endeavors though.
