Dear Theo, I got the job.

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by danijones, Nov 5, 2011.

  1. It is possible after all.
    I am delighted to be returning to full time teaching after a career break of 7 years. In January I decided to start teaching again so I joined a supply agency. I had it in my head that it would tak a year to get a full time post. I regularly taught in 4 schools but on average only 2 days a week. This term I have only had 5 days in total. Budgets are tight I guess. I applied for a post in one of the schools that I do supply and was offered an interview. Whilst I was doing the application for that school I saw another job I liked so applied for that too. This one invited me to interview first and offered me a job so I accepted and I think it is a better job too.
    I had three interviews 2 last term and 1 yesterday. It is a matter of keeping trying.
    I could talk about how I feel for ages but think I will stop now. Good luck all.
