    I will receive my QTS this April and have 3 years of teaching experience in English and Social Studies in the US as well as a year studying at a UK university. I have applied to over 25 jobs over the last 4 months and have not heard back from any of the schools. I am not sure what I am doing wrong I have a well written and detailed personal statement and experience.

Any suggestions for what I can do different or something new I should try? Thanks so much for any help!
