Re: Finally found an IT position!!

@grumbles - thx for that advice - I did converse with my Search Associate at one point and she really couldn't understand other than I was a family of 3 and my age - oh well, I was a bit picky about places, but I am hoping I position myself for the next IT placement somewhere else.

Re: Is only using Search Associates a mistake?

TES has some really good schools on there. I wouldn't discount them at all. They have been the one place where I have gotten the most responses, even if a no.

Re: Finally found an IT position!!

@heliotrope - I know - embarrassing - 65 (actually it was way more) but I'll keep that one to myself!! - I was always wondering what wasn't clicking. After the acceptance, more yes we want you letters started coming in - you know what they say, once you have a job, the offers start coming.

Re: American at a British school?

I often wonder this too. I have 4 1/2 years teaching the British Curriculum. I believe as long as you are teaching the Standards, you are ok. Of course, you have to do some research to brush up on unfamiliar topics, but I believe anyone can adapt to a Curriculum, its how you teach the standards that...

Re: Moving from China to Europe - advice???

What does it mean to "ghost" a job or reference? I have seen this comment a few times. I have no clue what this means. Thanks for any insight.

Re: Ichiro examples

I did mine using a google template for a brochure. Then went to Kinko's and copied it on very light lavender paper and folded it in 1/3rds. I copied in color and stopped when I realize it had gone above $50!! I'm glad I did it. It may have been neutral as far as recruiters receiving it, but as Psygu...
