It's been a few years since I applied for more than one job but I was wondering if getting a phone call to inform you that a school wanted to invite you for interview (prior to their sending a letter) is a thing of the past? Many years ago, when I was an nqt, I cannot remember a time when I was not phoned to be offered an interview. The official letter would arrive a day or two later. Even two years ago, when I last applied for a Deputy Headship, the chair of Governors phoned to let me know I was shortlisted and to ask if I was still available on the interview date. So far I have received the offer of 2 interviews by email only - Does nobody get a phone call these days, or is it just me?
