Here goes...

Salaam World

I'm feeling a little anxious. Why? Well because I have been invited for an interview tomorrow at a school I may wish to work in. I gave up job hunting, as in formally applying for jobs a few months ago when I registered with a few agencies to help me find supply teaching work from September onwards. Since then I had accepted that it would take nothing short of a miracle for me to successfully get a full time job before September for a couple of reasons:

1) Impracticality - I am currently living in a different town to where I will be working/living in Sepetmber (iA) and so arranging the travel is very impractical, especially when I and the hubs are working through the week.

2) I have no personal contact with any of the schools - which although does not automatically equate to me getting employed by the school, it does help in getting to know the staff and students which can only be a good thing.

3) ... there was a third reason, but I'm incapable of remembering it right now.

Am I moaning? *nods* *grr*

I really shouldn't be because alhamdulilah, I have got a back up plan in-case I don't have a permanent job by Sept - which is to do supply. And did I mention some of the fab benefits of doing supply? No bringing work home, no stress of planning/marking etc (unless temp-perm) as I'm expected to just teach (or sometimes supervise/babysit) the lessons I'm covering for.

And so, anyhoo I should be okay even if this interview is one from hell. Buuuut, who knows right? It's all part of His plan and I'm happy to go along with it. Wish me luck peepz!

Dear Allah, The Most High Creator, if this job is good for me please allow me to have it and if it is bad for me please remove it for me.

sis i'll be maing du'a for you inshaAllah as i'm going through the same I'm not sure whats going to happen in September in terms of a job as the Islamic school I'm in right now pays waay too less and so if I cant get myself a job by Sep then supply teaching it is!

It just wasn't meant to be, but thanks for the duas all the same! You're working in an Islamic School too? SNAP! SNAP to the reasons you're looking to leave too! InshAllah we will both be successful in securing a permanent job soon :-)
