Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by annakvick, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. <font size="2">Dear Theo</font><font size="2">I wanted to write to let you know that after attending your course in London on the 21st Feb this year I have just accepted my first teaching post. Since attending the course I applied for two positions, I was shortlisted for both. I am sure this is a direct result of the advice I was given regarding executive summaries and how to put together an effective personal statement.</font><font size="2">I found the workshop on how to behave at interview particularly helpful and was able to employ strategies I learned from the session, for example STAR. At my first interview I came 2nd out of 90 applicants and three days later I was offered the job at another school, this time I was one of 60 applicants.</font><font size="2">I cannot thank you and your team enough. As a GTP Drama student the job market is looking particularly bleak however I was able to bag one of the few jobs out there and believe attending the course enabled me to stand out from the crowd.</font><font size="2">I strongly recommend this course it was excellent and well worth the money.</font><font size="2">Many Thanks!</font>

    Congratulations & well done for following all that good advice that I'm sure Theo gave. Particularly for Drama- not exactly high on schools priorities at the moment.
    I don't know if he'll award you a shiny star or if you'll have to start a new post 'I got the job!'

    I remember you - GTP Drama are not very thick on the ground.
    You were the one who laughed really loudly when I said that you had all learned 2 very important things in the first two minutes of the seminar - one of them being that First Impressions Count, the other . . . well, we'll keep that to ourselves. A seminar secret.
    Well done on getting that job, and good luck with it.
    Now, about that shiny star . . . .
    Really, to follow the rules and be fair, you need to start a new thread called " Dear Theo, I got that job!".
    Just because I remember you from the seminar, doesn't mean that you get special treatment, so off you go and start it. It's to give other posters a boost when they see that title.
