I've been through final interviews 6x now and each time they've picked the candidate with "more experience." The only feedback I ever get is "they had more years of experience."

I’ve been with my school district for 15 years and had an interview for a different district. They offered me a position but only pay 1 year to every 2 you’ve been teaching for. I had to turn it down since it would be a $12,000 pay cut!

We get a slap in the face for our worth..... doesn’t seem right how the system works for us....

Also, do interviewers still appreciate a handwritten note after an interview?
