On Monday I received a call from my supply agency, it wasn't from my usual branch but another local branch. The consultant wanted to send my CV to a school that were recruiting. I said yes and less than an hour later I got a call back from the same person to tell me that the school were very interested and wanted me to come in for an interview on Wednesday (today), I agreed (I was happy that I was shortlisted so quickly) and further details were sent on to me later that day. I spent Tuesday planning a lesson and researching the school, making sure I was prepped to deal with any questions that might come up and that all my resources were ready. I received a phone call from the agency who gave me feedback they had received about other candidates, giving me tips for my interview. I went to bed happy knowing that I had done all that I could. Today I received a call at 8.30am from my usual consultant informing me that the school had decided to appoint someone from yesterday's interviewees. I'm very disappointed, not because I didn't get the job but because I wasn't able to show my ability at the interview. It feels like I was dismissed without a chance. I understand that they found someone who suited them but if they liked me enough to shortlist me surely it wouldnt have done much harm to let me interview? Am I being too precious about this?
