I have been reading lots of posts recently here whilst looking for jobs, and just wanted to say thank you for all the good advice and general encouragement to everyone I have read. After holding out for the right job for nearly half a year (checking every TES update!) I got the perfect job at the perfect school for me on my first interview! The part I wanted to share is that I was the least experienced candidate by over a mile and was extremely nervous on the day. I really wanted to thank everyone who has posted in this forum, as I very nearly didn't apply, but everyone's determination here made me just go for it. Good luck to everyone, and definitely go for the opportunity you may think is just out of reach!
