Let this encourage those of you who are jobless to keep looking: after I was offered the position, I got a couple more calls for interviews (and one more offer! self esteem +2). So, if you are now where I was last year, don't give up! Keep pushing your resumé around, keep making connections, and if you really are feeling pessimistic, at least put your name in for substitute gigs, especially in small towns; they need subs too, and are often hard-pressed to find them. You could be the go-to substitute for the entire county! Imagine your resume next time around "sought-after by 12 schools on a regular basis" has a nice ring to it, no?
Best of luck,
