Hi all, I just wanted to share my story as I love to read about others on this thread..... Previously written, I went to a job fair few weeks ago and was on the spot hired. Monday-Wednesday rolled around my references was called. I did not hear anything back from the school. Friday, my nerves were high, and I finally called the hiring principal. During this time, I really felt nothing ever come that easy. My instincts were right. The principal said that the position offered, might be given to someone else with more experience, and bring me to a different school to be interviewed. So I cried my eyes out after the chat. I knew if I went to interview for a different school, different principal, there's a high chance I won't be hired. My background that made me stand out was I am bilingual certified, if they bring me to interview for a reg. ed. position I won't stand out because also I am a new graduate. The principal did say shoot him an e-mail about our conversation so he can refresh his memory on Monday. I did, I e-mailed him stating I am interested in both position. The next day, I realized that I really want that bilingual position. So I wrote out another e-mail about my passion for that position. Seriously, I poured my heart into this e-mail (in a short and concise way). At his point, I don't care about "just landing a job" I feel so passionate about this other position. I just thought, I can't say I did not try, if he still feel that it's not the position for me then let it be so. I waited till today to call him back. He said he talked with the other principal and do for sure that the bilingual position is mine. Now I am just waiting for HR to call. I remember my university supervisor's advice, put your heart into it. I really did! I hope you learn from my story, if you have a passion in it then fight to get it.
