There is a job that I believe I am fully qualified for, and would be an excellent fit. However it is listed under “internal positions” as opposed to “external positions”. I do not currently work for this organization so I don’t believe I qualify for internal positions. My questions are:
Is it worth a shot at applying anyway? Do they just completely ignore all external candidates?
If they can’t find an internal candidate and it gets opened up to external candidates would my applying for the job when it was listed as internal affect me?
Is it considered bad form to do this?
This job closes August 2nd, so timely help would be great. Thanks.
