My boss's boss could only make part of a meeting and asked me to sit in on the rest and take notes. During that meeting, someone introduced themselves as a new team leader at the CDC's local quarantine station. I applied for similar roles this past summer and was referred to the hiring manager but never heard back, which is a shame because what an absolute dream job it would be working with shit like that. Well during yesterday's meeting when the new guy introduced himself he mentioned they were hiring one more. Sent him a cold email after work mentioning that is a dream job of mine, and he wants to forward my resume to the hiring team (he's too new to hire himself) and follow -up next week.

Thanks, boss! Way to take initiative on that. Hope it gets your somewhere.

Good luck I hope they don’t crush your soul with their bureaucracy and science denial . I have so very little respect for the cdc now that I would support shutting it down and either starting again it just giving up altogether.
