Thank you both. Yes my resume and cover letter have been read
by administrators and I have had only positive feedback. I do
sub, however I can not sub in every district that may have an
opening. For the few districts that still use paper
applications I usually get an interview.
My main problem is getting my resume/application seen with
the online application AppliTrack. Most districts use them
(in New Jersey), and from what I understand the "powers that
be" use a sorting process therefore my application is not
even being looked at.
