I am getting sick of being asked this question on a weekly basis. I know people are just trying to be supportive and show that they are interested but I wish it would stop. Most people don't understand that teaching jobs have set times when they are released in bulk due to the notice deadlines. So asking me on a weekly basis if I have found a job yet is not in the least bit helpful as most of the time there are none advertised. Obviously there are a few which may crop up - maternity leaves and the like. I had 3 job interviews whilst I was on my PGCE - but obviously didn't get any of them! I was so excited to get interviews that I told nearly everyone, but everytime I found it more difficult and annoying to have to repeatedly tell people I was unsuccessful. Luckily for me there are currently 3 jobs to apply for but I don't really want to tell anyone because of this. I will tell my mum and partner but not anyone else because I can't deal with constantly being asked if I got an interview. Again I don't think I am going to tell anyone *if* I get an interview. People who are not in education don't seem to understand how tough it is with over 100 applicants per post and the fact that some schools are looking for a particular 'type' of person. I'm fed up of 'advice' that I should go on courses to improve interview technique etc as I am obviously not any good if I didn't manage to get a job after THAT many interviews - yes 3, just 3! So, are you fed up of being asked this question? Do you tell people about applying for jobs or getting an interview or do you get the same reaction as me?
