A job I am very interested in had a Thursday deadline so I sent the application and letter off on Wednesday. I checked it all over and that it was in my sent folder....all good. This evening (Saturday) I received a mail delivery failure notification and would you believe it; the mail was that job application....3 days after I sent it!! I promptly forwarded the email I sent on Wednesday to a different (but relevant) email address at the school explaining the error. I normally follow up on emails or ask for notification of delivery but Friday was so manic at work and it was early evening before I got home. The interviews are Thursday 11th and I intend to ring first thing Monday morning but I fear they will have already shortlisted. Do schools usually make exceptions in cases like this or have I simply missed the boat here? The error just says the mail was undeliverable after many attempts.,,no idea what went wrong, never happened before.
