Just in case your wondering, I didn’t apply. It wasn’t even close — I decided to give it a pass after a day of thinking about it.
As it happens, the job posting was up for only three (!) days. This is in a hospital where similar postings are sometimes up for weeks at a time. This timing makes me think there was a candidate already selected, the selection process was window-dressing, and that any interview I would have gotten was for decorative purposes only, to prove there was a “competitive” process.
In other words, it would have been a complete waste of time applying.
