Want to Work for Obama? Fill Out This 63 Page Application
 
[url]http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/13apply_questionnaire.pdf[/url]

I really hope this doesn't turn into a right vs. left thread, Just wanted to share what an application to be a top ranking official under the new administration looks like. I don't know how it compares to others, nor do I really care quite frankly.

Looks like a NYS job app. I was going through the process of applying for a state job and I gave up in pure frustration.

You didn't open the link, did you? It's not 63 pages - it's 63 questions. 7 pages.

Doesn't seem unreasonable at all for someone effectively running part of our country.

63 Questions and I'd think that is pretty standard stuff.

63 items, not sure I've ever seen an app that detailed. And notice all the information and documents you have to provide. Not your typical standard application for employment.

These are not your typical jobs - everything in here appears to be to uncover skeletons prior to confirmation hearings. They are looking for conflicts of interest, possible improprieties, prior inconsistent public statements, etc. The last thing any president wants is to appoint someone, only to have a skeleton emerge during confirmation, which makes it look like either (1) they haven't done their homework or (2) they exercise poor judgment.

Of course and I agree, I was just responding to those that said it was standard stuff. Standard for a job like that maybe, but not for the general public.

I did open the link, and I scanned through most of the 63 questions/requests. Pages was a typo, my apologies, thanks for assuming.

Yea, I thought that was the standard stuff WalMart & Burger king asked on their applications.

I assume constantly - it gives me that "edge" that the ladies find so attractive.

You know we read over those questions and think how hard it would be to complete but I bet most of people considered for these jobs have this stuff pretty much in hand.
