Ok, so, I applied for a couple of positions down in Orlando yesterday. One at Valencia Community College and the other at UCF. They are both basically academic support services positions similar to what I'd been doing. The Valencia position is the one I'd prefer but more of a long shot. The money is too good though; I had to try.

I think the online application process for higher ed jobs must be part of the weeding out process. The first app took me an hour to fill in, and that was mostly just copying and pasting from my resume. The second one was the same interface so it only took me half an hour.

I'm meeting with Kevin next week. He's still out doing his networking thing. With any luck he'll come back with some good news and we'll be able to stay together. Still my preference but I'm not going to sit around here waiting for him. If something better comes along, I'm going to grab it.

Wait! Who was the position with at UCF?!?

And yes, the first round of job weeding out is the online application. If you make that look good and fill in all the spaces...

It's Director of Learning Resources or something like that. Maybe that was the title of the other one but they were basically the same position though the Valencia one was a Dean and paid almost twice as much.

The director one sounds like it could be VCC's position. Depending on which campus you could be just down the road from me.

I know my department has one or two openings and the University has quite a few in general.

So, good luck either way!!

I just checked (cuz it was bothering me). The position is Director of Academic Support Services. And it just said Orlando. I don't know how many campuses there are in Orlando.

If that was for UCF, that will be main branch.

VCC is set up a little differently. I know they have an East and West Branch, both are in Orlando.

I'm rooting for you :)

*crosses fingers*

Good Luck.

If you get the Valencia one, I'll have a reason to visit Florida...lol

Hell, if I get the Valencia one, I'll be able to do anything I want. (6 figures)

Hot damn!

Yeah. Double my current salary in a place where the cost of living is about 2/3 what it is here. But I'm calling that one a long shot because I don't have that sort of luck. I have the sort of luck that keeps me from starving or going into serious debt. But the set for life kinda luck? Not so much. We'll see.
