The cost of job-hunting

11th July 1997 at 01:00
Have you been searching through The TES these past few months looking for a new job? If so, I expect you have, like me, spent a lot of money sending off for details and application forms, as schools are becoming more and more reluctant to pay postage.

Is it not, therefore, possible that schools could pay travel expenses to interviewees promptly rather than having to be reminded by a letter four to five weeks later. This term I have had to write to two schools visited to receive the money due.
