I’ve applied for a new job. It took me about a week to write my letter of application and fill in the forms – I was woefully bad on the chronology of my employment and education – but today I sent off all the necessary bumpf. Hoo-fucking-rah.
The school in question is private, and the sort of place where the children of rockstars and dictators go to be educated. It’s also in London. Aaand a Head of Department post. So, the chances are not good on my getting a call to interview, even if I could do the job with one hand tied behind my back in less than adequate lighting. Flambé is also applying, and I would imagine that half of Britain will be doing similarly.
Even if nothing comes of it, at least i’ve gone through the process and things will take much less time when I next find myself applying.
