  1. OK - so its open season for all the egos in the management to start recruiting. A prize for the worst example of hoop jumping demanded by said recruiters.

    Trying to print off and fill in their application, scan it and attach it to my CV as a PDF was an absolute pain in the butt given the equipment I had access to in my last job.

    Wondering if the moths in David's wallet will ever be set free. [​IMG]

    But you managed to apply, sidinz? And got the job?
    I would guess that the ponderous self-importance of the application process would be symptomatic of similar qualities permeating the management culture of the school - or were you pleasantly surprised?

    Right at this moment the moths are being driven out in swarms that resemble a biblical plague (maybe I'll elucidate at a later date). I just don't like the idea of paying pimps - which is how agents are often referred to.

    By who? Bloody hell, Dave, did Search let you down? How was the interview Harry? Mine was great. His son was there too and I liked it. Formally informal.
    Search searched good enough for me. And not wanting to drag up an' old story again...but you have had 20 jobs in two years (exagg'd) - I have had two in 20.
    Even on these posts you go on about 'a couple of years here and a couple of years there'. Only poor schools employ those sorts.
    You are wilderness bound, SD. .
    Nevertheless, HNY and keep tugging... [​IMG]



     
  11. No, after all that hoop-jumping, I didn't get the job. I actually had to comb the Internet and download a program to combine two PDF files and another one to convert my Word documents into PDF to do it.
