    Still the same status here, but keeping up the faith. About the years of experience condition it was pretty clear on the requirements. Maybe theyre giving priority for those that have applied for positions but not related to the versant program, the ones with experience, and then we would be filling the remaining vacancy.Just thinking randomly........improvising some ideas of what is going on "behind the phone" that doesnt ring :S
    Yeah I agree because I feel like that's the whole point behind new grad programs is that we need them basically to get jobs anymore as opposed to someone who has any kind of experience. So hopefully we all get calls soon...keeping my fingers crossed for everyone!

    Calls for interviews should be next week. So have your phones handy and stuck to you that week.

    Good luck all.
    Btw how did you find out they will be next week? Cause in the packet it says if we don't hear by Oct. 31st we can deduce we didn't get an interview..?

    I have applied to so many of these. Calls for interviews start to go out next week, on Halloween (interview dates to be scheduled during the call). Some departments may take a little longer. Stick with it. After a certain period (depending on which department), if one does not receive a call, feel free to deduce, no interview.

    Thank you so much for the information! I have applied to a ton of these also but none in this time frame before so this is good to know. Thanks I appreciate it!

    Thanks so much and I had put Float 1st and CV 2nd. They said this interview is a manager panel and that the next round would be unit specific.

    Looking forward to seeing more posts about calls received from everyone here :-)

    OMG! Just stepped away from my fone for a second and they called, but didnt leave a message! I googled the # and sure enough it was CHLA!! I applied for CV also. I just called back and had to leave a message because they did not answer!! I am freaking! Why would they call and not leave a message?! Was this the right move to call back and leave a message?
