I am currently looking for ESL teaching jobs in Italy. In fact, a few months ago I applied to a school in Italy. However, they said the positions for the school year had been filled and that they would contact me should a position open. Is this just a friendly way to say they are not interested in me, or is this a legitimate response? What do you think? Also, would it be too forward to keep inquiring about any open positions? Let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
It could be a polite don't-ring-us, but it could as easily be genuine- it's not uncommon for teachers to change plans and not appear at very short notice. I don't see that you have anything to lose by asking.
