Work went late tonight.  Met with parents of my students.  Ungh.  I know what my responses are to your posts but I'm dead tired, so I'm gonna try to fire them off before I head out for work again early tomorrow.  Just a heads up.  If i miss that window Sunday evening for sure.

Sorry I'm posting a bit slower at the moment.  This week and through next are a bit intense as a major test that I teach for approaches.  I'll have time to post on Monday and then after this week my schedule will open up and I'll be trying to make at least one post  (for each of you) every day.

Thanks for understanding!

I'll trade you not being able to post every day if you can get me a teaching position.   :cometome:
Did I mention I have a Master's in English, Literature and Language, and a certificate in Rhetoric and Composition?   :cometome: :cometome:

Yeah... that explains so much, doesn't it?

well, you could get get another masters and teach in NYC public schools as English or ESL teacher.  You could get a job tutoring for the various English tests the city offers... ACT, (P) SAT, SHSAT, Regents English, etc.  Although you'd probably have to supplement that income a little.  You could work through one of the tutoring websites in the city.  You can work as a substitute teacher.  You could get an editing job.  You could always get work as an office temp, with those clear communication and writing skills you picked up from all of that English.  You could probably also get a ton of jobs writing for startup magazines n' such, although they probably wouldn't pay you at first, if any of them took off and got popular you'd be on board a rising star.  Just some possibilities the city offers for those of us inclined towards English as a profession.

I've done some tutoring work, but wasn't actually employed by a company to do it. Unfortunately, I don't have a teaching credential, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to go back at least for that. I apply for temp jobs and receptionists and customer service rep jobs and everything, but so far only one of them has even gotten back to me once with a "You made it past the first round" email. I'm guessing they don't want to hire somebody they feel is "over"-qualified, even though he's perfectly willing to work for the same wages in this hound-consume-hound world!

Yeah... That's what most of my classmates are ending up doing. Japan, China, and Taiwan. (Even one guy who's Taiwanese-American and a philosophy major probably has to go to Japan to teach English. Go figure.) At least I wouldn't have to go back for a credential to do that. I can teach "conversational" English.
