You guys give great advice (I'm enjoying reading through threads from years ago just to glean some tips ) and so I have another question for you wise minds. There's a district near me where I really want to work. I interviewed with the personnel director back in December for a substitute job so, when I emailed her my application for a high school job opening in February, she emailed me back and simply said, "since we've already interviewed, I'll just forward your application on to the principal." I got an interview for that one. Well, another job opened up in the same district (at a very new school that I very much want to be at) so I emailed the personel director again (she'd said to make sure there was a paper trail to her for every job I was interested in) and her reply was form-letter-like in that it said something like "Thank you for your interest. I'll review your application and contact you if I'd like you to come in for an interview." My question is: is it appropriate to follow this up with another email? I don't want to ruin my chances but I really wanted this job and since I'd already gotten an interview at another school in the district...I thought I'd ask you wiser minds!! My apologies for the epistle.
