Well after waiting much longer than I should have to hear from Best Friends Animal Society, I realized I was going to need to apply for other jobs. So a couple weeks ago I applied for an Academic Advisor position at a local technical college. I sent a follow up e-mail & recieved a message back. It stated that they did recieve my information & that they would begin reviewing the 300+ applications next week. So I would hear from them in about 3 weeks. I know I got a similar message from Best Friends about the fact that they recieve a LARGE number of applications. It's been so long since I've been job hunting, I'm wondering if this is normal or is this a sign of the economy? Just curious. One would think that someone with a Master's degree would be applying for jobs that had less competition, but I guess not.
