    Good afternoon, NAME OF HR CHICK. I applied for the 6th grade position yesterday morning. I was just curious if you could tell me the status of my application.

    Thanks,
    Peachy

    Never mind. I decided to call. It's easier for me to talk than to write.

    And in case anyone cares, they received SO many applications, it'll be a week before anyone will hear. I'm shocked because the jobs were up for only two days!!! I have a lot of connections but I'm starting to get worried now.

    Don't worry about the competition, Peachy. Remember the competition should be worried about you!

    Thanks kangaroo! Wow, you have a lot of posts but I don't remember your name. Nice to meet you! :D


    ETA: but then again, I can never remember names and that's why everyone is called "sweetie".

    No, I still have this job. It's in the same district. The thing is, it's part time with no benefits. I also get classified pay, which is really low and by the hour.

    I do LOVE this job and everyone is already upset (but happy for me) that I may be leaving, including my P. I wish they wouldn't say things like that because I may not even get the job!!!

    Anyways, it'll be a step up. Plus, someone will be able to get my job! I have everything set up for them, too!! :D

    I changed my name a few months ago to remain a little more anonymous.
