Your tax dollars at work.
Play the percentages with me a moment.
So Friday evening I'm watching "The Dog Whisperer", and about half way through a commercial for the local Veterans hospital comes on. Fair enough.
The ad closes with this announcement:
Within the viewing area of this commercial, every qualified candidate is known. How many can there be, after all?
Is a TV ad likely to drive more out of the woodwork?

Could it be a sign that the VA is not satisfied with the candidates? Odd, though, as you point out.
Maybe the VA needs a candidate that understands rules, boundaries and limitations. Oh, and the ability to say ssssst! when the underlings are in need of a correction.
I have a similar reaction when I see Boeing commercials. I told my husband we really need to look at the Hornett next time we're purchasing a fighter jet.
Maybe they are hoping you know someone who is out of work in another city?
Nah, just the usual affirmative action stuff, gotta advertise to the general public. Same rules for surgeons and backhoe operators
There is a television show called "Dog Whisperer"?
Si, David there is. It's actually pretty funny. National Geographic channel runs it almost full time. NC Jack, perhaps but they never, ever run TV ads looking of backhoe operators.
Nanc, I'm that way with all drug ads too. The day my DR start accepting my advice on what I should take, is my last day there.
Perhaps there was a convention of the required specialists in town? I suspect EEOC requirements drove the ad. The bought the least expensive time they could find. and can now prove they advertised the openings.
I swear this is true, but I have in fact heard from someone interested in the job. What are the odds?
