Re: After Interview contact
Sorry, but the only thing true about your post is your first sentence. It is true that there is no requirement to post it anywhere than a place the general public has access to, but I can tell you for a fact that many districts have started posting on the different websites even though they know who they are offering it to. Why? They want to be seen as "transparent" and making a "good faith effort". Some have even interviewed applicants who applied through these website for the same reasons. No district wants to have a band public image when it comes to personnel and this includes the hiring process. While this usually happens in larger and more high profile districts where "everyone" wants to work, it also happens in the smaller ones where the GOB system is prevalent. This business (and I specifically mean band director) is really more about who you know and not what you know. It's been like this for as long as I can remember, and I've been in it for 23 years.
