Hi all, I need some help. I am a PGCE student trying to get jobs anywhere in the south west. Recently three jobs came up local schools, including my old school. I applied for all three only to find out I have not been shortlisted for any of these. I made sure I tailored the letter and application to each school, reading their website and really getting across what I am all about. I don't understand why all three rejected me on the same day as I recently had an interview at a school in Cornwall who praised my application for its strength and detail and I feel I implemented this into my applications. Some of my friends on my course got all 3 interviews and this whole situation is completely depressing me. the truth is I know I am a good teacher. I care about teaching but more importantly I care about my students. I just feel like people never recognise what I can do. I am 7 weeks away from completing the course but i don't think i can find the inner strength to carry on because i dread that i will never get a job. Obviously the money plays a massive part in why i want a job but its more than that. my dream is to inspire, engage, challenge my students and I don't want that dream to slip away. How can i make my application stronger and find that strength to carry on? A very troubled Emma.
