Am I the only one or do others find it sadly ironic (for the desperately "hopeful", I mean) that this thread is fighting for top billing with the one named "Firing season @ HCT"?

Seriously, those thinking about jumping onto this train wreck, doesn't that EVEN give you the SLIGHTEST bit of pause???

Or, do YOU think that they will reform for YOUR sake when they see how they've abused YOU, too???


Some folks just can't ditch that messiah complex, you know... Laughing


Yeah, but doesn't EVEN that involve critical thinking??? How can one teach the skill of critical thinking if they can't display it in their own decision-making processes! Sheesh!!!

Some need the money... some need the job. This might be a step up from a job that is as bad or worse... in a country that pays half as much. The information is here for those who want it. To me the key is to know what you are getting into...

Well, VS, those, forgive my being forward, are all givens. I've said my peace. I'll make a second parting observation on this thread (unless challenged):

Not ONE of the desperate hopeful have posted in defiance saying that they have been fully informed of the situation on the ground, yet, hard-earned Master's fully-in-hand (or the DELTA) are defying reality because: (Fill out the blank with a reasoned/educated response).

No one suggested that they did. But no reason to insult these people for choices that they may have to make sometimes...

I think that introducing the term "insult" is, well, unfortunate. I feel that I pointed the obvious of two significant and universally opposed threads fighting for top (or were) billing at a point in space & time. As a "discussion board", it was intended to invite discussion.

If that "insults", then...well... Shocked

There is much not terribly well-hidden innuendo from various posters that those who don't follow his/her advice and still choose to take these jobs are fools at best.

I consider that an insult, but perhaps you don't. It is sadly common all over this board.

Hi there. I sent in an app with HCT a few months back and they finally notified me directly in an email requesting an interview. We had a Skype interview and then ...POOF! Nothing for 3 weeks.

Is this normal? Does anyone know what happens during the hiring process at HCT?

Thanks


I too had an interview with them and they gave me some timelines for when I could expect a response. I was advised to follow up with an email to the admin person who had initially contacted me if I hadn't heard anything in two weeks. Have you tried this?
