Re: Job Hunt Question
It has been my philosophy that I want my resume in the hands of the person making the hire ASAP. That means 99% of the time that's going to be (officially) the building principal. You will want to send the DFA a resume as well, especially if they are listed as the contact person on the posting, then send the resume to them first; even then it's the building principal that makes the official offer...the DFA is usually the "entry point" that may make the first "cuts" and send the rest to the principal for final interviews. This is all still something that can vary from district to district. If it's an assistant position that is open, find out who the head director is and send them a resume as well.
The only time I would stop with just filling out the district application is when a job posting specifically states "don't email resumes", or something along those lines.
