I've begun applying for AHT jobs. I think its the done thing to visit a school (sure I read that on this forum). I have few questions regarding this. 1) Can I just inform my school that I will need time of to visit. I currenlty have outline 8 jobs I could apply for so wont this begin to take the micheal a little. 2) Can a phone call substitue. I'm not restricing my future schools location so if a school is far away from my current location would you still expect me to visit? 3) If I phone rather than visit would that decrease your opinion of an applicant 4) If one makes a phone call should they mercilessly sell them selves as the best person for the job or should they ask the questions they need answering and leave the self promotion for covering letters and personal statements. Yes my grammar is better on my application, its the interweb in'it!
