What is My Max Distance From Home?
Your “Max Distance From Home” is how far you are willing to travel from your home address for a substitute teaching job. It is very important that you set this preference correctly because you may be impacting how many job requests you get.
If you set your max distance from home at 10 miles, for instance, you will only receive job requests from schools within that radius. This means, other subs may be receiving opportunities you’re missing out on that are just beyond that.
Therefore, if you want to receive more requests, adjust your radius to be larger. The farther you are willing to go, the more requests you will receive. If you get a request for a job that is too far for you, then simply decline it. No harm in that!
