    I was offered a job on Monday as some of you may have read in other posts on other threads. I got a call from the HR office this morning since they were having difficulty locating my application. After helping her locate it I inquired about when I could come in to sign the contract. She informed me that it would be after the School Board meeting tonight but would not give me anything concrete. I got a call from the head HR person to discuss some things about my background (which I had disclosed on the application) and he said he was going to approve the application and the recommendation for hire and pass it along to the board. I still have a job right??? :confused: :( :rolleyes:

    It is just a formality. The Board has to approve you before you are an offical employee. I have only heard of ONCE a person not getting approved and it was a weird situation. You shouldn't worry!

    I don't mean to pry, but what type of weird situation? I am worried I might qualify for that... :eek:

    One of the board members knew the family and they hated each other. She didn't get in because she wasn't liked and the one board member campaigned against her. It was kinda sad.

    If you have a DUI or something.. it happens. I don't even really think board members really question the HR department. At least I've never heard of it happening. If the HR is recommending you, you really shouldn't be too worried. You can always attend the meeting and if it is brought up, you could "speak your case" if the issue is addressed. BUT.. I highly doubt it will be.

    Well I would be upset if it did since I turned down another offer and an interview today thinking I have already secured a position! The HR director said he would put his stamp of approval and set up a time to sign my life away (well for the next 9 months anyway!) but again I am not feeling as confident as I was yesterday!

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. It's a formality that's all. You will sign that contract soon. :D

    Scary stuff, I know. My principal told me that board just signs the stuff they don't question anything.

    Congrats!!!!
