    Hello fellow job hunters!

    So I had my demo lesson yesterday (thanks to all of those who gave me advice). It went really well and the principal even said that the lesson was excellent, the children were engaged, and that I met all of my objectives. She told me that the next step is an interview with the superintendent if I am recommended for hire. She said that I could hear as early as that day. (i.e. yesterday).

    I still haven't heard. I know its sad that I'm freaking out and it has been a little over 24 hours, but since she said that I could possibly hear that day, I am now doubting that they will call.

    What do you guys think?

    Today is Tuesday.

    Give it till next Monday afternoon before you give it any serious thought. The odds are good that they're also seeing other demo lessons, and it can be hard to get all the participants all there on the same day.

    Good luck! It can take awhile for a job offer to be made after an interview, so I wouldn't give up yet.

    Thanks all! I'll keep you posted. The support here has been so helpful


    As I was leaving my demo lesson I heard one of the students say, "I like her! I hope I get to see her again!"

    In my head I was thinking, "Too bad she isn't in charge of hiring!"

    I had an interview 2 days after Easter.

    I just got a call about it today. So there is no telling when they might call.

    Fortunately, I got to tell them that I already had a position. I would imagine that are getting a lot of those responses.

    Heres another issue. When I applied for this job (almost 3 months ago) I gave them old references. I would like to give them an updated list (containing the people who wrote me letters of rec). From what I understand this third interview isn't a job offer but the last step in the interview process before an offer is made.

    Should I call and ask them if they would like my updated references list or just bring it with me if/when I go in for my third interview?

    I wish I would have thought about this sooner, but because I applied to so many schools, I forgot about which schools had my updated list.

    Call about the updated references and depending on their answer send it.

    I would call, but I like to have as much contact as I can with out becoming annoying. I hope that way they don't forget me.

    I am the same. My only reason why I wouldn't call is because they have a copy of each of my letters of recommendation (3 in total) and those would be the people I would now list as people to contact. There is contact info in each letter as well.

    In the online application there was a section for references, which is what isn't up to date.
