Doesn't sound real good, not too bad either.

 

 

I have seen this before.  Dept. head has a good idea, gets the "go ahead" from his boss, and so on.  Owner of the company still has to be sold on the idea, but dept. head starts bringing in people to interview to see if he get's any home runs.  If he hits on a good one, he may be able to sell the idea to the owner and get it approved.

 

 

I would continue to look if I were in your shoes....that said, if you are smart, you will never stop looking/getting your name out for a new, better job.

 

In this case it is a professional sports league. Not sure if that changes anything but we are talking huge budgets and the smallest department within the entire league. When interviewing they mentioned expanding the department soon so I'm hoping it gets approved as this is the job I have been building/gearing my skill set and resume towards for a couple years. I was told from the very beginning that getting hired here takes a 'long, long' time.

BUMP/UPDATE:

The position still has not been filled and last night I spoke with my contact in HR. She told me that I am their guy and that she wishes she could give me an offer right now but the position still needs to be approved. The delay has nothing to do with other candidates but rather logistics. I interviewed December, 3rd. She told me that her gut feeling is that it will be formally approved and the necessary people will sign-off on officially creating the position but that there is a still a chance it does not happen for whatever reason. I guess my question to some of you is, is this sort of thing normal? By that I mean, for a company to interview a candidate without the position actually in place or formally created ahead of time? Do you think it is a department head that needs to sign off on the position being filled? I'd assume this is the case as he would likely be in charge of budgeting and things of that nature.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!


Anyone?
