what I have done. I did not hear back about the job in HI, which I applied for thru USAJOBS. So, I decided to check on that website and see what it said about my application status. I applied for a few directly on that website, but had to follow links to other sites to apply for some jobs I was interested in. Well.....I have a list of ID names and PW's and made my way to the USAJOBS page for my applications. It shows three- two say the status is "pending HR action". Neither of these two are the job in HI- it is either no longer lsited at all or I must have applied to it thru a link. If it isn't listed at all, wouldn't that imply they have already filled the position? I found a number for HR and called them and have a left a message to check the status. I found another link that I might have used to get to that job but none of me ID's or PW's on my list work there. LOL! And the two listed as "pending HR"- I haven't heard anything from them. I'm so confused! Ok- if the man that interviewed me wanted to hire me, like he said, and he turned it over to HR but they haven't called, does that mean I might have gotten bumped by someone with preferred status?
