Buds will blossom, greenhorns will mature, so you just wait!
Update from yesterday's post: Ok, maybe I AM tech-y and professional blogger-y. I've been blogging for 9 years, after all. Play up your experience Ms. Ng! Play it up, and get some more while you're at it! I'm saying this as I didn't get the Wednesday interview job. =\ Apparently, I was among their top contenders, but they went with someone with more experience. Which is reasonable. It just irks me because:
a) I do have a lot of classroom experience! 2.5 semesters of student teaching! 1 year teaching in China! 3 years teaching after school art! Accumulated 3 years of tutoring! Altogether 8 freaking years of teaching Sunday school! 3 years being a youth group leader!
c) I didn't play up that experience as much as I should have. Not that they wouldn't have gone with someone with more experience. It isn't much in comparison to veterans of 9+ years who were pink slipped this year. But still. If I've got it, flaunt it.
d) The whole point of getting a job IS TO GET EXPERIENCE. No job means no experience. Yesterday, I found out that no experience means no job. In math terms, it should look something like this:
No job <=> no experience.
Suck on that single subject math CSET! I'm going to pwn you! Also, I'm going to seek experience where ever I can find it. Teach, teacher, teach!
