You are too expensive.

Hi everyone,

I am so upset. Two weeks ago I was recommended for my dream teaching job by the department head with whom I interviewed. Since then, I have been waiting for HR to set up an appointment to go over my paperwork and meet with the Superintendent. I was told this was just a formality. In my past experience, it always has been a formality.

Today I was contacted again by the department head who was embarrassed and apologetic. He informed me that HR had decided that, while I was the best candidate for the job, I was too experienced (15 yrs), and therefore too expensive to hire. This was not posted as an entry-level position, by the way. He told me that this has never happened before in his experience, as if this would bring some kind of comfort to me? It would have been nice if they'd figured this out before they called my current administrator for a reference. Now on top of not getting the job, I feel like my present position is in jeopardy.

Has anyone else experienced this? Thank you for letting me vent, in any case.
