Hi Theo Firstly, thanks for your help and advice over the past couple of weeks. I now have a dilemma which I would like some advice on. I applied for a job that I really liked the look of, that had a closing date of yesterday. I have since visited another school and was shown round in a small group by the deputy head as the headteacher wasn't there. The head called me tonight to ask what I thought of it, if I had any questions and if I would be applying. We talked for a little over 10 mins about the school, my experience, the role etc. and I feel like I really want that job. I got such a good vibe, both from the visit and the phone call. I've never had a headteacher call me in this way before, and have no idea whether this is unusual or not. My dilemma is this: I presume that if I get shortlisted for Job 1, that the interview date will be before I hear if I'm shortlisted for Job 2. If I didn't get Job 2, I'd love Job1, but I feel that I have more scope with Job 2 to really enjoy the role (a different role to Job 1). Given that if I could choose, I'd want Job 2, do I still go through the process with Job 1 until I know what's happening? I might not even be shortlisted for Job 1, in which case I won't need to worry - but is is there any way that I can tell Job 2 that I do want their job but have applied for another one previously? I'm so confused - especially after that phone call tonight!! (I don't even know if this posting makes sense... sorry) Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks, sparkly.
