They filled the position with someone else. Last Thursday, the director sent me an e-mail saying the position was open again, I was one of the top candidates, and he wanted to see if I was still interested before they posted it again. I told him I was still interested, and went out there to talk to him Friday. They said they’d let me know. I thought it went well. So I just got the following e-mail from him 30 minutes.
From having worked at the University before, I know that sometimes jobs are posted with “Candidate in mind”. But I’d think that if that
was the case he would have told me that. But as everyone says, it doesn’t hurt(or cost) to apply again.
