Just wanted to post a quick update concerning my earlier post: they offered me the position (two courses next term) yesterday. Yay! Also: 70-80 students worth of crap papers to grade. Yay. Razz

Talked with my friend who is also the Director of Planning for the agency (that has to be a good thing, right?!) and he said out of the 100+ applicants they had, about a quarter are over qualified and they won't be considering them, about a quarter are under qualified (recent grads hoping to catch lightening) and they won't make the cut. That still leaves a qualified pool of 50ish .... ugh ...

So, I guess technically I could hear any time about an interview for the first opportunity. In the mean time, I'm putting my hat into the ring for a second - a Director of Planning job with a nearby city. Am submitting my cover letter and resume, as well as a six page response to "supplemental questions" and an 8 page generic application. I spent nearly 6 hours of my holiday yesterday writing it and putting it all together, as applications are due today and I only found out about the opening Wednesday (I guess I just hadn't been looking).

Just heard from the City. Said they got my materials and would be letting applicants know of the next phase by Mid July. Hoping that's only a week or so away! *fingers crossed*

And so one of the opportunities was so overwhelmed by the volume of interest that they've hired a consultant to assist them in their candidate selection process. And it'll be another 2 weeks before they have made a selection on candidates to interview, for phone interviews no less. I wonder, if I get selected, if I could still meet with them in person. They're just 10 mins down the road.

Thanks, guys. It does suck. I mean, I was qualified for the job, at least how they advertised for it. So either the other applicants were just that much more qualified, or had expertise in other areas that they were looking for that they didn't emphasize in the job description. I'm bigtime bummed. Just a blow to the ego, y'know?
