Regarding your City of Austin Application...

Dear Applicant:

Thank you for your time and interest in Equal Employment/Fair Housing Investigator Senior, 065823. The hiring process for this position is complete and a finalist has been selected. We appreciate your interest in the City of Austin and encourage you to continue to review our website for additional vacancies.


City of Austin
Human Resources Department
Employment Services Division


Come on, people. I could have done that job with my eyes closed.

According to the City of Austin Web site, that job's primary responsibilities include...

1.Interpret Federal, State, and local laws/ordinances concerning discrimination in employment, housing, or public accommodation.

2.Receive phone inquiries or walk-in complaints of discrimination in employment, housing, or public accommodation.

3.Refer and/or assign new complaints/charges to investigators in accordance with established procedures.

4.Interview complainants to determine nature of complaint.

5.Investigate complaints by obtaining statements from witnesses or other involved parties and conducting research
necessary to evaluate the merits of the complaint.

6.Analyze data gathered during the investigation to determine the merits of the complaint.

Interview people? Interview people? Come on, City of Austin, I've only interviewed thousands of people for the last 18 plus years. Yeah, I would have had to learn some new terminology, and some new procedures. But as a reporter, interviewing and investigating was like breathing and eating.

Dude, this really, really sucks. I know my words probably won't help, but I'm sure there is a better place for you. I know at this point you just need and want a job, any job, but that City of Austin job doesn't really sound like a good fit - not skills wise, but it doesn't seem like a good fit for your personality, I don't think you'd enjoy it and would probably be too good for it (not to diss that job or anything). I know it will work out, and probably in a way you do not expect right now.
