... but no giant leaps just yet.
I had an interview today for a substituting job. For anyone that does not know I am unemployed and looking for a teaching job. I started looking for work late this year and I just want to find a full time teaching position. So now I don't have a full time teaching job, I don't have my own classroom but at least I will be in a school and working toward a teaching independently.
The best part about my interview today was that the principal basically asked me why I didn't have job already. He was shocked that I did not have a job. His first comment was "You have a Master's Degree from Sarah Lawrence?" "What are you doing now?"
I have to say it was a real compliment. He then told me to give him copies of all my materials to keep on file in case a place opened up in the school district. I was so touched by his kind words. It gave me the little boost I needed.
I know there are a lot of unemployed people out there, but if you aren't in this situation you don't know what it is like. Sending out your resume hoping someone will notice your qualifications. In truth, searching for work is hard work. What I realized from this interview is that sometimes I just have to keep plugging and maybe something will come through. I am a good candidate and I will get the right job in time.
Recently, Jeff and I almost made a very big decision but after some serious soul searching and my great interview today I think we came up with the right game plan. We will have to see how it works out, but it feels right.
Do you have that? Moments when you just don't know what is right? How do you resolve these moments?
