Hi Lauren! I just graduated in June and I know it can be overwhelming. I found this great website, SchoolSpring.com, where you fill out a profile with all your resumé information, request references, and then you can apply to jobs literally with the push of a button! They have lots of listings – more in some states than others. USREAP.net is another one. OMEA is a great resource, too, and your professors should have lots of connections with schools, so don’t be surprised if job openings start landing in your inbox next year. My best advice is to start building your network. I volunteered at adjudicated events and met a lot of local teachers that way – email the site supervisor and offer your help. And don’t forget that your old music teachers are well-connected in the field, plus they’re in a good position to recommend you. That’s how I got my job! Good luck!
