Interview in the Morning
« on: December 07, 2012, 01:08:58 AM »
Please forgive me for the last-minute prayer request.

At 9am tomorrow (Friday) morning I'll be interviewing for a high school social studies position in central jersey. I'm sure there are hundreds of others who have also applied for this, who have much more experience (both in teaching and in interviewing) than I do. Interviews aren't my specialty - please pray that I may know what to say and how to deliver, and if I may not get this position, at least accept God's will and learn from the interview process itself.

Thank you brothers and sisters,
David, the quiet forum lurker.

Lord have mercy.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Thank you for all your prayers. It went very well thank God!

I received a phone call this morning at work - the principal scheduled the second interview tomorrow at 9am as well.

This one will probably determine it. Lord have mercy.

Glory to God! They offered me the position. I have to go back to sign papers but I am tentatively scheduled to begin January 8 (meaning I get to actually enjoy our Nativity). As a new teacher taking over and teaching AP Govt, Honors US, and intro to logic I'll need all the prayers I can get. Glory to God!
