Okay I could use some advice. I am looking for a job now, and recently applied to an opening in a school where I interviewed and did a demo with three years ago (when I was first looking for a job). It's the same school and same principal where they have the opening, and back in 2010, we had some email correspondence about scheduling my interview and demo lesson. It was a good interview and demo, but I ended up accepting the job where I've been the last three years before I heard anything official from this school. Back then, I emailed her to let her know I accepted another position and she was very grateful for my email. I'm not sure whether they had already filled the position at the time of our correspondence or if I was still a candidate at that point, but either way, it was a positive experience. I submitted my application online through applitrack, but I wanted to reach out to her in some way to remind her of who I am so my name doesn't get lost in the pile. I'm thinking a brief email to remind her of our interview and express interest in the position. Here's what I have so far. Please give advice! "My name is ***, and I recently submitted an application for the open middle school mathematics position you have at *** Middle School. I don't know if you remember, but we interviewed together and had a demo lesson three years ago. I very much enjoyed meeting you and learning more about your school back in 2010, and I am very excited about the opportunity to meet again." I was debating adding more (talking about the experience I gained the past 3 years and why I'd be a good fit for the school, etc), but I was leaning more towards keeping it short and sweet. I don't want to repeat what is already in my application/cover letter.
