A week ago I saw a posting for a job in the suburbs of Chicago that looked really great, but the posting was a month old. I called the number associated with the posting to ask if they were still taking applications, but my call went through to an answering machine. I left a message, but no one got back to me. My assumption after all this was that they probably weren’t looking for more applications.
Then they reposted the job three days ago.
I don’t really know how to interpret this. Was the job reposted automatically? Are they actually still taking applications? Should I bother to apply? Without a little more information to go on, I’m basically reading tea leaves.
I decided to send them an application since the job would be a really great opportunity, and I’d love to have them consider my application if they are indeed still looking at applications. Realistically, though, I won’t be surprised if I never hear from them.
In more positive news, I received two more endorsements! It warms my heart every time someone writes one for me. And, hopefully, it will also help me find a job.
