How to not get a job.

I've been half filling out online job applications. I've half filled out four online job applications.

Unfortunately, half filling them out is equal to not filling them out at all.

(The semi-completed job applications have been happening in between spurts of working on a research project/paper about specific methods I used during my student teaching and the outcomes of those methods.)

If you can...get to those schools and drop your resume in person...get the vibe of the place before you bother to apply...

Mimi, that's what I've been told by the career counselors at my school, too. Unfortunately, I'm currently in a different state than the schools I'm applying to, so I can't do that.

Also, a lot of the applications (all of which are online applications) specify, "No paper copies." They want EVERYTHING to be digital.

Hmm...I never thought about that contradiction before (the suggestion from you, Mimi, and others, that I drop the resume off in person, yet being told to only apply digitally). I even called a couple schools, to ask specific questions about the applications, and all they would say to me was, "fill out the application on the website."
