1) My replacements are trained, and
2) I figure out where I'm going next.
So where am I going next? Good questions. Here's the stats so far. I have interviewed so far for positions at:
- Yosemite NP
- Katmai NP
I have interviews in the next week for:
- Great Basin NP
- Grand Canyon NP
- Western Arctic NP (region served by office in Kotzebue - Noatak, Kobuk Valley, etc.) - 2 positions
- Curecanti NRA
- Sequoia & Kings Canyon NPs - 2 positions
Yesterday, I was offered the campground ranger job at Yosemite. I accepted the offer, pending my other interviews. I also have to go through a second federal background check for the Yosemite job since I would be handling lots of $$$. So that will take a few weeks most likely. In the mean time, I'm going to see what the other parks offer me. The Yosemite job is a GS4, which is a grade lower than Katmai, Great Basin and Grand Canyon, and three grades lower than Sequoia-Kings Canyon. Plus it's not really interp, which is what I really want (all the other jobs are interp-related).
