okihope @LolaTeach, that's kinda what I figured too. I am not sure how they go about it. I know at my previous district they were required to post the job but if they already had someone lined up they didn't have to go through the interview process with other candidates. We will see!

haha Agree, it's hard to know for certain. If the other person is a local hire though, they are not generally required to interview CONUS (it's generally the other way around: they have to investigate local before they go CONUS). Hang in there!
HelpOthers My understanding is that they only request referral lists and interview CONUS when there are no qualified local hires.
