I just read a thread about this.Someone said they applied to Taco Bell for a job b/c they couldn't find a job as a RN.Is this a joke??
I absolutely understand your situation. I worked at a district for 15 years. I just got my science credential after being a substitute for a while. I was positive that I would get a position in science.
Well, like you said they got about 400 apps/position. They don’t count substitute as experience, even though I was long-term in biology and health at a middle school. To make my life a bit more exciting! They laid off most of the elementary school teachers and placing them in the sub pool on top of us. I’ll never get an assignment like that.
I’m lucky to have a medical assistant certificate from when I was younger. The clinic behind my house hired me. I know! I’m NOT going to be able to sub next year. I’m retaking my nursing prereqs and taking a chance.
