Hi all Went to an interview for an art job the other day. There were four candidates including myself. We were given a breakdown of the day's activities when we got there; basically, lesson obs, tour, look at portfolios, then interviews. We did our lessons, tours, showed our portfolios, and then we were told to sit in the staff room while they worked out who was going to be interviewed first / second etc. We were just left in the staff room for ages longer than they said, then one of the interview panel came up, took three of us downstairs and said we were unsuccessful and could go home. They would not tell us why we were unsuccessful as 'they had another candidate to interview', but we could phone up and ask later. Has that happened to anyone else, where they have gone to an interview and not actually been interviewed?? I found it all a bit unprofessional. Interestingly, the remaining candidate was still a student teacher. I reckon the school had gone for the cheapest option, as the rest of us (candidates) had far more experience. A colleague where I am working at the moment said I should write a letter to the Governors of the school stating my unhappiness with the interview process. Would I just be wasting my time writing such a letter or should I make my point? Any advice gratefully received!
