    For those of us moving on the Application/Resume review is happening this week and we should be hearing where we stand and if we get interviews in the next week or so..... Good luck to everybody out there in the process.

    Has anyone heard how many they may be hiring or any other details that were not in the letter from HR?

    Well, because I didn't attach my application to the job posting (even though I created it), I'm out of the running.

    Hindsight being 20/20, I should've called when I was finished with the application to make sure they received it, but it's of no consequence now. I do believe the public sector in general needs to relax their rules a bit in situations like this. The company I work for has submitted proposals that arrive an hour or so late due to FedEx or UPS and we've been thrown out under the same reasoning. Just doesn't seem right to throw away a potentially great person/company based on something like that.

    Oh well, that's the environment we're in.

    Good luck guys.

    I'm sorry to hear about that. Are they making calls?

    I called them in a panic when I realized what happened.

    I think they're supposed to decide this week and make calls next week, but that's only speculation on my part. I didn't confirm the timeline.

    Has anyone heard any additional information?

    Yep, said the list will be established Sep 21st and we'll be notified at least 15 days after the list. So i'm guessing the end of September. Time to hurry up and wait haha. Wonder if they will be doing Chief interviews soon too.
