Today's rejection Letter" Dear McKenna Lane, I regret to inform you that the principal has recommended that another candidate advance in the selection process for the 3rd Grade Teacher Vacancy at ***** School. You were one of nearly 250 applicants! This year the job market is really difficult; the competition is fierce and the supply of teachers outweighs the demand. Your application will remain on file with ***** School District 112, and I encourage you to check the district web site for newly posted vacancies. Thank you again for your interest in the ***** Schools. **** I appreciate getting a notice when I wasn't even called for an interview (there has to be a data base for them to do this-that being all the applications they received in the 3 days it was posted. I am sure the Asst. Superintendent didn't type out everyone...and even WITH MailMerge - which fills in the name of the candidate and the position automatically-you still need a database). I wish others would be so kind. What I would REALLY like to do-though I know I wouldn't get a straight answer-is to ask...so how DID you narrow it down. what words or information dd you scan for? How COULD i get past that scanning?? Hmmmm.
