...still no rejection, but no anything else, either.

It's obviously a very busy time for unis with the new undergrad year starting and all the extra logistical issues of teaching in the face of covid to be dealt with, so I'm telling myself that this is no cause for concern.

When does it start Rae? You could drop them an email just to check they have your application. Best not to fall through the bureaucratic cracks!

I was actually rung on the morning of induction day to ask where I was. They hadn’t actually confirmed my place at that stage!

In the ad it just said they wanted someone to start before the end of the year, and the confirmation email after I submitted the application it said 'when the application deadline has passed, the selection committee will review your application and you will be contacted.' nothing about a timescale.

I shall email the recruitment woman whose name is on the confirmation email to ask for a rough indication of when the committee might get the chance to sit.

Got something to say?
