Less than 24 hours ago I made this thread about my lack-of-interview woes. Today I e-mailed a lot of the principals of schools that I applied to and attached my letter of interest and resume. Thank you so much to Aliceacc for that advice! A few hours later, one of the principals got back to me and invited me to come in for an interview tomorrow!! The district is a few hours away, so I'm going to the area tonight, staying at a hotel, and waking up early tomorrow to get there on time. The rest of today is going to be spent re-doing a lot of things: Getting a haircut Re-studying the district Organizing my portfolio Re-reading the helpful interview threads here I'm going to wear a suit and tie, bring another copy of my resume and cover letter, and my reference letters. I snail-mailed my application in only a few days ago, so I don't even know if the principal has seen it. Should I bring in another copy of my application as well? Anything I'm forgetting? Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm so nervous, as this is my first interview! By the way, this is for a first or third position (the principal did not specify).
