Curious on Gordon's thoughts: My understanding with government jobs is that when the application period is less than 2 weeks between job posting/closing, it means someone has already been identified for the position. So I imagine this applies to the posted Public Affairs Specialist position with the Census. If I'm misinfored, please correct me!

Emily - I tend to share that skepticism - and I actually raised that concern with a Washington Post federal jobs expert here:

Ed's answer tends to soften, but not completely allay, my suspicions on this issue; and that's all I have on it. I'd certainly welcome any perspectives from any well-informed DCPA+CJ viewers.
