Dear Theo and other...a bit disheartened

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by mere57, Feb 11, 2012.

  1. I started a post at a school in January. It is a temporary contract until the summer. When we were discussing the post, the head teacher suggested that something might come up for a permanent position and that I need to make my mark.
    I really like the school, kids are great, staff are nice and I am working harder than I ever have before!
    When is the time to ask whether the position could become permanent?
    I realise it's early days...however I don't want to be in the same position as last year. I had a temporary position until the summer. Left it too long before I found out that it wouldn't become permanent and didn't have a job in September :-(
    Thanks in advance x x

    Well, you obviously need to do your best and convince them you're a good potential candidate should a post arise, but you also need to show you're looking at any other possible posts, should nothing come up.
    When you go to your Head to ask for a reference, that's when they might (or equally might not) indicate the possibility of a post at your present school.

    The moment you see a job that you would like to apply for.
    Sign up for a TES JobAlert (see the instructions) so you don't miss any.
    Best wishes
