- I think this school is a community college. Una74 (talk) 16:55, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
- Is a 6/5 typcial for a community college? I've seen a few 5/5 loads requested, but even then not often. Others? Experiences with such a requirement at CCs or elsewhere?
- Still beats being an adjunct.

Whence UNC Charlotte? Edit
What happened to the UNC Charlotte position (Coordinator of Writing Resources Center)? Does anybody know? I saved the ad on my computer, but now I can't find the position on UNC Charlotte's jobs site or on the UNC general jobs site. 18.104.22.168 00:43, November 14, 2013 (UTC)
No request for new materials, but no rejection either? Edit
What does it mean when you don't get a request for more materials, but haven't received a rejection either? Some of the jobs list both as having been received and I haven't received either yet. Anyone know? (and yes, my application was submitted properly with a confirmation)
- If we were talking interview requests, it usually means that you didn't make the short list, but you fit the job well enough that you're being kept in a backup pool of candidates to be reached for in the event that the almost totally illogical process of a job search leaves that position unfilled and the committee finds itself scrambling to avoid a failed search. Some places seem to send rejections out very quickly, and others will send no rejections until the whole process is over.
- But since we're talking materials, it's possible for committees to send out staggered requests, which I've seen happen occasionally. Let's hope that's what's going on here!Rhetorician (talk) 18:51, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
- Yeah, I'd second the above. This thing really is a marathon sometimes that makes utterly no sense by the end of it all. I've had request for materials come in later in the game (perhaps because the first round people all withdrew, took jobs elsewhere at better places, or they got more material and simply didn't like the pool they had? who knows!), and I've also just never received a rejection letter ever. (you eventually find out from around the way...like when someone posts on here that they accepted an offer). True story: I once got a rejection note a full 13 months after I applied for the job. Hang on tight.
