I apply for a job. Same job that currently have but at a different school on my district. On the surface it appears to be a simple transfer. I’m encouraged to apply. I feel the interview goes well. But I don’t get the transfer. And I’m told that competition was steep. Everyone at the school I want to transfer to are surprised. I get the impression that many people applied. In fact I’d be surprised if there was a lot of people applying for this position. I am so frustrated.

I completely understand your frustration. I’ve applied for and been rejected from so many positions DESPITE the fact that I graduated magna cum laude. I’m 45 and tired of these games of chance. If I want to gamble, I’ll go to Las Vegas.

Do you know who got it? Do they have some connection you don't have? Or maybe they can coach or do some magic extra that they were looking for?

10 bucks says it was the new principal who didn't want an in district person. It could be as simple as not wanting to hear "This is the way we did it at (blank)".

The same thing happened to me, but I was trying to transfer back to a school where I had been VERY successful in the past. I left the district and couldn’t be happier with my decision.
