- School may renew my contract anyway, but education ministry is delaying its decision an inordinate amount of time. Which is bull-shit, because, hey, if they don't come through, at the end of that waiting period I could be left hanging if I'd waited for them and not found a different job! (Also, when one of the recruiters I applied with called for a reference, my school said I might be re-resigning with them! Thanks a lot, school! Clearly if I cannot work here, I cannot work anywhere!) However, I am...
- interviewing at a cram school in an ideal location tomorrow. And God dammit if they offer me the position I am taking it. I've got like 2 or 3 weeks before this job ends, I do not have time to sit around and wait.
- And finally! Today I got an interview invitation from my first-choice grad school! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH. Way sooner than I expected. Shit if they roll out their admission decision soon enough and I get in, I could even save money not applying to the other schools whose deadlines are in late November.
Of course, this means I wouldn't be able to teach my lessons on a Tuesday. I'm sure my co-teacher will understand. If my unflexible-as-fuck vp doesn't, well, fuck him. (This should seem like a reasonable request, but my vp is not a reasonable man.)
So. Grad school interviews. Anybody got any tips? I have no idea what to expect.
ETA: HOLY SHIT INTERVIEW IS NEXT WEEK NOT 2 WEEKS FROM NOW LIKE I THOUGHT. THANKS FOR THE ADVANCE NOTICE, GRADUATE PROGRAM; WHY IS EVERYTHING IN THIS COUNTRY SO LAST-MINUTE??????
ETA 2: Dress for grad school interview: suit required or not required? My only suit is in America.
