There are plenty of great jobs - be patient and find one!

NEVER, never, never agree to a contract without first contacting at least one person already employed at the school. Don't let your zeal to get a new job cloud your judgment - ALWAYS try to talk with someone familiar with working at the actual location before you sign the contract. Why tempt fate to save the cost of a phone call?
