This may be a dumb question, but when it comes to my job search I seem to be over thinking everything so here it goes. I am about to start a long term assignment, and a principal from a different school in the same district called me today to set up an interview for an open position she has for next year. It turns out this principal that called me is friends with the principal at the school where my mom teaches in a different district. This principal (from the different district) said she would be happy to call the principal I am interviewing with to put in a good word for me. My only concern is that I don’t want it to appear I am trying to use a personal connection to get the job (especially since I got the interview on my own, the principal I will interview with doesn’t even know about the connection at this point). Is it ridiculous for me to even question this? This principal who will be interviewing me already seems to be very interested and I just don’t want to do anything to mess it up. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
