    I'll gladly take the job if they offered to me. It's a job I'd enjoy, and I need a job.

    Why don't you contact Nettles and see if she knows who you can contact about it?  Even if you don't get the job, it may prove to be an interesting diversion...

        Aside from the lottery operations clause, half the workforce in Texas would qualify.  Sounds as though they might have someone in mind already.  Someone who doesn't have a degree, but who has at least 3-4  years experience in management, and though it's ambiguous whether the same five years executive management counts toward the swap of experience/degree, likely anyone who can satisfy the executive management requirment has been around long enough to have both.

        Now they just have to jump through the various hoops of a selection committee, frown thoughtfully, let a bit of time pass, and slip in whomever it is they've already got picked for the job.

          Yea that's the way it's usually done regardless of wether the person has the gumption or not.

          There's a lot more to the job description, qualifications, and endorsements security checks etc etc. than the few blurbs i posted. All in all the best candidate should have some kind of proven track record in lottery related business.

                If it pays more than my current job (which isn't saying much) I'd be happy to take it. Evidently I wasn't enough of a critic.
