Dear Theo, I have two interviews next week

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by TheoGriff, Nov 18, 2011.

    Well, what excellent news! Well done you!
    Do the search, and just remember this: it will be something that you have done day in, day out, when you were on teaching practice or supply.
    It'll be a doddle!
    We look forward to you starting your new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job!
    Best wishes

  2. Well, it didn't go well today.
     

  3. I assume from your post that you didn't get the job - no worries we have all been there. Now for the future. Can you identify what didn't go well - hard given the stress you were under - but great if you can. Where you given useful feedback - hit and miss this one. I only ask this to clarify your mind for your next interview. Maybe this job wasn't for you - keep smiling, it's the only way we get through this!

    Then pop along to the Flowers thread specially for all us disappointees!
     
  6. Thanks everyone. The day went well up until the actual interview! No one got the job! They said my lesson was great, lovely personality, good relationships with the children but I didn't sell myself in the interview. I found the questions really hard going. They've asked me to do supply for them. Anyone, onwards and upwards.

  7. Gutted for you not getting the job but the supply is great news. As well as giving you an income for now, it is also something you can really 'big up' on application forms (that the school has asked for you to be their regular supply teacher). This in itself is a real achievement in the current climate!!! Well done!

    I agree with Kitkat, that being asked back as a regular supply is a real compliment.
    If they didn't appoint you never know you might get it next time.
    Let's trust it's the beginning of lots of work for you.

    That's really good news[​IMG]. I got my longest teaching role from being unsuccessful in an interview, so you never know! x
     
  10. Well, I didn't get the second one either. They said I gave the best interview but the person who got the job's lesson had more of a journey.
    Back to the application forms today!

    More of a journey? More of a journey?
    Why don't they speak in English instead of gobbledy-gook.

    But you did VERY WELL to get that interview, so you can feel confident as you fill in some more forms!
    Best wishes
