    How should you be informed that you have been unsuccessful with a job interview? I would expect a polite phone call? I see a 2line email very impolite when I have been contactable fully since school finished. Am I wrong here?

    No, you're right: it's downright rude, but it speaks volumes about the school.

    I think a polite phonecall is best, but I am increasingly thinking I am old fashioned and out of touch with the modern world.

    Emails and texts are increasingly common...

    Text rejections will come soon.... UR NOT WTED
  5. In this day and age I think that getting an email is polite from a school if you have been rejected!!

    I once got a rejection letter from a school who had forgotten to put a stamp on the envelope, so it cost me £1.20 just to find out I wasn't wanted!
    Adding insult to injury in my book.
