Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by ichi, May 16, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I have been applying for jobs recently and finally got two interviews this week. One interview is on Tuesday an the other interview has been split into two days. So part part one which was the lesson was today and part two will be on Wednesday. If the school tomorrow accept me do I have to give them a response on the same day? I would like to wait untill Wednesday to hear from the other school so that I can make an informed decision. What is the done thing? I have been teaching for two years now so I am not an Nqt.
    I am I entitled to a day or two to think it over or do I give them an answer straight away?
    Many thanks
