I will say that back when I was job hunting and naive about being hopeful the most annoying thing a school could do is send you an update email about the position you applied for and say the P was still deciding. Now I never met the P and even had 2 references from teachers at this school and still didn't get the position. One time that was completely the most frustrating and made me the angriest ever in job hunting was when I was verbally offered a position after demoing and interviewing and they called me back and said well our chairperson on the board wants us to interview his niece now. Of course I had already submitted my 2 weeks notice and couldn't take it back (school year had already started). Needless to say I didn't get the job and I was unemployed for months. It was a very hard time in my life but I lived through it and I am much happier today because of it.
