    Do you apply for them anyway?

    I don't. I feel like they will think I don't follow directions or I don't read the postings.

    I WANT to apply. But I don't.

    I don't, but I watch the posting closely in case it is opened up to external applicants. I also will watch the district postings because if they do hire an internal candidate, then that might open up another job that I might be interested in.

    I watch closely for that to happen, too.

    I don't apply for positions that are internal. I figure that won't look at the application anyway, so why waste my time.

    My district doesn't even post openings until all internal positions are filled. :-/

    I wouldn't apply for internal positions, because they clearly say no outside applicant, so I'd look like I don't follow directions well, and it would be a huge waste of time. If that position doesn't get filled, I'm sure they don't go through any applications that might still work.

    It's kind of the same thing if they have a position for special ed, but I'm only certified general ed (but I think I could teach it) and I apply for it. They wouldn't even call me because I'm not certified in the area. Waste of time.

    I wouldn't apply, but like others have said, I keep my eye out in case the positions open to external applicants. :)

    What is very annoying is that a lot of districts around here post openings that they know full well will be filled with internal staff or people who are on the recall list. Yet they are required to post the job anyway. Just a waste of everyone's time.
