I applied online via the County website for jobs in Education. I have had problems before with this system and do not fully trust it.I'm no technophobe, but I must admit I'd have preferred to post or email my application given historic difficulties.

Anyway,will I make a Royal and <needy> PITA of myself if I call today and check my application was received?

Deadline was Friday last week.

No, ring and find out. You are not being a pest. You are checking something.

No I would phone and check, you wouldnt be making a pita of yourself you just want to check it got there okay. good luck by the way.

No, check.

Ring , when is the closing date ?

Do check. You won't be a PITA, plus the chances are the person you speak to won't have anything to do with the decision anyway...

Closing date was Friday so my application went in on the last day as I stumbled upon the vacancy quite by chance.

Thanks for the vote of confidence all, I phoned but no reply...don't suppose the school office is manned all through the holidays. I'll try again tomorrow if I've heard nothing via post.

Objectivity - the answerphone might not be checked until the last week of the holidays when more of the staff are in and out. Did your application go straight to the school, or to the LEA?
