    Ok, so I applied for a position at my old school. It was up for a whopping one day. I got called for an interview and have one next Monday. This will be my third interview of the season. :thumb: They told me I could come in today but unfortunately I couldn't make the times they had. Stupid part-time job. What strikes me as odd is that they are doing 3 days of interviews. How many people applied in one day? I'm trying to figure out what my chances are.

    On the other hand, I can't believe this will be my third interview of the season. My head is :dizzy: thinking about it.

    I heard at one of the schools near me that in one day they had 350 applicants! So many people are looking for jobs.

    MAT considering it is your old school I should think you have a good chance! They KNOW you and that has to help right? Good luck and let us know how it goes. Hope you get it!

    Good luck, MAT!! I know where I interviewed they were doing interviews for 2 days...now this town isn't all that big to begin with so I'm not sure why they need that extra day. It could be that they are working around schedules and to fit everyone in it takes 3 days.

    I hope the fact that it's my old school will help me. I'm only interviewing with the P. No idea what he could ask me but hey it's an interview at least. :)

    When we conducted interviews at our school we did it on 2 different days. We did 4 each day- a total of 8 interviews to fill 2positions. They get to be very boring and drawn out, so maybe they are just spreading them out to help themselves! Good Luck!!!!

    Good luck! When I helped my P interview candidates last summer, we had up to 6 interviews a day for a few days.

    Tomorrow is the BIG day! I am so absolutely nervous that it's ridiculous. For goodness sake, I taught there. I guess I'm so nervous because this is probably my best chance. My portfolio is all together. Now to hopefully get some sleep tonight.

    Good luck!

    ... and 350 applicants isn't unheard of near me. I was told there was something like 300 applicants to one of the schools I applied to (Chicago suburbs... near Naperville).
