Hello, I wanted to share my story. About ten days ago, I was interviewed for a position I am genuinely interested in. The Principal’s body language was positive since the beginning of the interview, and the department chair, who I met at the job fair, seemed engaged. However, the AP’s body language was negative. She was listening but very much looked at me even once. When I left, I was confident that the interview went but I had a feeling that AP never wanted to interview me. After my interview, I sent a thank you email and a thank you letter to everyone. However, I only received the Principal’s prompt reply to my thank you email- it was great to meet you. I thought things were progressing in the right direction. But yesterday, I received a response that they are moving in a different route, and all the best. I asked for feedback, and the principal responded within 5 minutes that I had a very good interview, but unfortunately, they are looking for more experienced candidates. I student taught in the same district, and so trying to come back. The Principal and AP from the school I student taught both completed a reference form for me. What did I do wrong? They must be aware of my experience before conducting the interview. Why I was rejected after a great interview. Position is still open and no candidate is selected yet but I got rejected. Has it ever happened to anyone here?
