Hello all, After a few years overseas, I have made the decision to head back home. Just so happened that a role in my old school came up and I applied. I left on good terms and would love to head back there as it's a great part of the UK and I really enjoyed my time there. My family were really excited at the prospect of moving back to this area, as it would mean that they could go back to their old schools etc. I sent in an application, what I thought was a good application. Obviously I know the school, know the procedures, so I referenced this in my application. I am under no allusion that I can just walk back into my old job. Competition for this position will be high, and I really tried to sell myself in the best way possible. I have yet to hear back from the school re: interviews, but did get an email from an old colleague 'advising' me that it would be best not to appear 'overconfident' as some members on the recruitment committee do not know me. I don't know if this colleague has read my application and it came off that way, or they are just giving me some friendly advice (would anyone just do this?!), but I am now concerned. IF I make it to interview, does anyone have any tips on how to appear more humble? Is that what's needed here? I am extremely nervous about the whole thing and really don't think the job is mine, but how can I make them see this? I can't exactly just tell them this can I?
