Anyone working for the province has to pass some kind of public service aptitude test. I'm really not sure what it entails, but I don't see it as a problem. I test well.

After that come two rounds of job-specific tests, and two interviews (one combined with the second round in this series). So, I'm coming up to hurdle two of a five hurdle series. Many thousands of applicants for 200 jobs, and I'm competing for one of four that I selected.

I have no idea if I even can work full time, but the public service union is a pretty good thing to get into.

My apologies for the unintended slight. Bureaucracy should be blamed on the *elected* government folk. I have never encountered anything in life so exasperating and illogical as dealing with government. Rules for the sake of rules.

Even this application process was an example. They offered email submission of pre-formatted Word templates. Fine. When I test emailed it to myself, some of the data disappeared. (Apparently, no one had thought to do that during the setting up of the application itself. I was told I was "resourceful" to have tested the submission outcome.) That missing data would have caused the rejection of my ap without anyone even looking at the content. During the submission period, the entire email system collapsed, and they lost untold numbers of aps, and had no records to even try to recontact those whose aps disappeared. They extended the submission period, but they did so quietly, so I didn't even find out until after the new deadline had passed that there was another opportunity to submit. I didn't know if my ap had been lost, and they wouldn't tell me. That was confidential.

Government is a bizarre invention.

You already had a President Hoover. Out in Nevada, there is a testament to public opinion on his administration, Dam Hoover....errr....Hoover Dam.

Still, you could write in my name on the ballot. That would be kewl.
