Sorry if this is becoming a snivel spot, but I am quite tired of job application nasty grams. Declined. Fail. Sorry.
I don't want to brag but I have 3 count them 3 credentials (Multiple Subjects, Secondary English, Administration, all with the ELL authorization) and a handful of years experience in varied places, positions, age groups, etc. I also have a MA degree, education-related.

So I'd say I'm quite qualified, but....

Your application for the recently advertised position of xxxxxxx was received and has been considered along with the numerous other applications submitted for this position.

The quality of the applicant pool was exceptional, and the application screening portion for this position was very competitive. Consequently, only those applications that demonstrated the closest match to the needs of the position will move forward to the next phase of the recruitment process. Unfortunately, your application was not selected for continuance.

We wish you the best in your career search, and hope that you will feel free to apply for future openings in the District that are of interest to you.

Sincerely, xxxx

  1. Don't let it get you down. This economy is having that effect on a lot of very good people. Might I suggest you consider offering your services to the homeschooling community in the meantime? It won't bring a full time paycheck (at least, for a good while), but it might just help. Homeschoolers often look for tutoring in a subject or two, test administration, and teachers for co-op classes. I have often thought Homeschoolers and laid off teachers could develop a partnership in a rough economy!
