Looking to network (Melbourne, Fl)

I have a Bachelor's degree in Physical Education. I am looking to teach, merchandise (applied at P&G) or anything part time with daytime hours.

 

Re: Looking to network (Melbourne, Fl)

  • Hi, I know you from MM. :)

    Know that this is an extremely hard area to get a job. I started looking in 2009 and never found one, especially if you are a professional with an advanced degree or a trailing spouse, as many of us seem to be, Teaching market is tight-Brevard County is still not accepting substitutes. They did accept me as a volunteer two years ago, so you might look into that.

    The school year has already started, but you never know what could open up! :)

    Are you new to the area? What brings you here?

  • Hey-I grew up in Satellite Beach, but lived in Orlando for college (UCF) and then DH and I moved back here in 2007. It has been HARD. He got a teaching job after 6 months of interviews in 2007. I work in Parks and Recreation in Viera (not even through the county-I was hired through a staffing agency). I know, I know...at least I have a job, but it is nights (mostly) and DH is a teacher, so he obviously works days. Just wanted to netowrk the area and see if anything happens on the board. What do you do?

    I look all the time on the county board. I used to email me resume out to nearly every school in the South/Central Area and 90% of the principals didn't even email me back.

  • Curious, have you tried Charter schools? We recently relocated, and FH got a position with a charter academy, very quickly, granted he has his Masters in Teaching Earth Science, not physical education.

    Amen, girl! :) Over 600 resumes sent out, 3 interviews, 0 jobs. I work nights and weekends as well, so I'd love to have a friend in the area. I own a small business and I actually want to start a girls' group, just for fun, like "women of Brevard" or something.

  • Hey! I have a small business as well. Wanna start a small business group for women?

     Have you tried meetup.com? I am in a women's night out group (just joined and haven't gone to anything yet:) )

    PM me if you want to! What business are you in?
