Dear Theo: Thank you!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by KitMaff, Feb 8, 2012.

  1. Out of three applications I got 2 interviews - Yes, the Executive Summary works [​IMG]
    I'm an NQT on a 2 term maternity cover and I went to my Head yesterday to request time off for the interviews (both single term contracts that would allow me to finish my NQT year). She came to me this morning and asked me to stay, saying that if I do they will pay me till the 31st August [​IMG] Which puts me in a good position for the September start jobs that are just peeping their shiny hopeful faces over the horizon.
    So thanks for your help Theo [​IMG] and yours too Lara (there's no emoticon for heterosexual girl crush, unfortunately)

    Glad to hear about the interviews kitMaff and that's good news aboutyour current school. Do I understand correctly that they want you to stay for next year? Or is my cold 'befuddling the senses'?
    (ES IS a really good idea, though unfortunately it didn't work for me last week.)
    Add your name to the Interview reminders list and we'll all keep our fingers crossed for you.

  5. Lara, there are 2 jobs coming up for next year and I think I'm in a good position (my lesson got an outstanding from Ofsted and my class are making really good progress), but no... they haven't offered me a position for next year. Will apply when they advertise them. I've withdrawn from the interviews and will only be applying for September starts from now on. Good luck Lara xx
