To take this application form into school?
cardboardboxx · 30/06/2017 16:10
I applied for a TA job and emailed the form to the school's admin team. The next day I emailed asking them to let me know they had received the application.
Today I rung asking them if they could let me know and they said someone would get back to me but I've heard nothing.
I'm quite new to applying for jobs so I'm not sure how long to leave it. Should I just drop a printed copy off at the school? Or should I just wait a few more days? Closing date is next Friday. Thank you

If you've already emailed them an application form you shouldn't need to give them another copy. School offices are notoriously busy.
If it really bothers you I'd chase it up at some point in the middle of next week but probably best just to leave it till then.
Best of luck for the job!

I work on the basis that if I don't receive an auto-generated email saying the email was undelivered (meaning I made a spelling mistake in the address, or used an invalid address for example) then it has been received by the intended organisation and will make its way to the right person. It's a busy time of year in an already busy environment (new intake, induction etc to sort in secondary and primary) so I honestly wouldn't chase it again or drop a hard copy off. That's an extra layer of work for all concerned.
