I am officially tired of wasting my time.
I applied for a government position back in February and even interviewed for said position a few months back. I thought the interview went fine.
The position outline of course describes the ideal candidate, who is expected to be a virtual human encyclopedia with a godlike ability to apply his or her knowledge in innovative and creative ways, while simultaneously solving all the world’s sustainable development problems. So yes, the moon and the stars, please.
In order to improve the way governments approach sustainability, they must change how they operate. But this is like trying to ask Kim Jong-un to get a better haircut. It ain’t going to happen.
The government decided to repost the position for which I’ve already interviewed now 3 months later, with no application deadline in hopes that some other superhuman candidate will come along to fill the position, I assume. They could have had someone (me, or anyone else with experience) working on their problems for months now, but prefer to adhere to the norm of inefficiency. This way the HR people are kept busy paper-pushing at least.
Just have to keep studying for the LSAT. I am incrementally improving my accuracy in answering questions, but it is slow and painful.
