OK, so clearly either not enough people applied or there weren’t enough qualified applicants, OR there is even more demand than anticipated.
If you missed this opportunity first time around, here is your second chance! The vacancy announcements for China and Brazial positions will open on August 18, 2011 and close on September 26, 2011. The announcement will be available on www.careers.state.gov.
So again, APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!!
