In the 2 following scenarios, a teaching candidate attends a Recruiting Fair & accepts a position:
In Scenario 1, the candidate signs a contract before leaving the Fair.
In Scenario 2, the candidate verbally accepts a position but leaves the Fair without a contract in hand. The interviewer indicates the contract will be forthcoming & sent by mail or special courier (i.e. UPS).
Based on the above information,
what would you do in each of the following situations?
Scenario 1: You signed a contract at the Recruiting Fair
Two weeks after signing your contract you receive a “congratulations” email from the Head of a different school — your #1 ‘dream school’. She tells you the position you applied for is yours! This school pays more than the school you signed with, it has a better overall package & is exactly what you want in a school & location.
What would you do? Please select one response from the following.

Scenario 2: You verbally accepted a position at the Recruiting Fair & the contract is forthcoming
The only difference between Scenario 1 & 2 is that when your ‘dream school’ made you an offer you didn’t yet have a signed contract in hand from the school which made you a verbal offer at the Recruiting Fair. You’re still waiting for the contract’s arrival by snail mail/courier. It’s been 2 weeks & you haven’t heard a word. The delay may be due to the fact the school Board hasn’t finished completing contract “updates” &/or your candidacy is awaiting approval.
