    Hi all! I had an interview this past Friday and I'm not sure when I should call the principal to see if she has made a decision. My interview went really well and she even asked me for a reference sheet at the end. I have never been asked for references at a first interview before, so is that a good sign?? She said the next step is to have an interview with the superintendent and he will make the final decision.

    I was waiting by the phone yesterday, but noone called and today is a holiday so I have to wait even longer! Do you think if they don't call tomorrow that I should give them a call on Thursday? or is that too early? I have no idea. The principal did say that they wanted to make a decision by this week, so I'm just really nervous. :help:

    Schools on LI are closed again tomorrow for the Jewish Holy Days. I think I would probably hold off until Friday.

    Good luck!!

    Did you ask them when they would be getting back to you? I think it is acceptable to call them the day after that set day to check on the "status of your application".

    Thanks guys!! The principal said she wanted to make a decision by this week. They had yesterday off and came back to school today. So I'm thinking I'll call either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning if I don't hear anything back. I really want this position, since it's so hard to get a job or even an interview in the NJ/NYC area.
