Dear Theo et al... I got the job!

    Dear all,

    Meant to post this a little while ago, just to say thanks to all those advising me before applying - I am now in my first Head of Department (or even faculty) post!

    The interview went swimmingly, and I beat 6 other candidates to the job. Considering how difficult I've had it at worse schools, it seems to me that there can be light at the end of the tunnel, it's just a long old tunnel sometimes!

    Oh yeah, and I ACED the interview, but with a few techniques of my own - not sure whether I should share them or not?

    Thanks again guys,

    The GoC
    Head of [Subject] and [Other subject]

    You're a Star, a Sparkly Star, @godofchicken !

    And I expect that other posters will want to congratulate you too, as you give them hope for their own job seeking.


    You've really done yourself proud with that job offer, so you get a star!

    Now go and read the advice for the next stage:
