I found a position with Hennepin County Dept. of Community Corrections that I was extremely interested in. I applied for the position and went to orientation although my questions about the position were never answered. I attended a 4-hour orientation only to find out that the position didn't even exist, and that they were still searching for a position for me. The main problem was that I applied specifically for the position that they had posted online. If I wanted a different position, I would have applied for it. It was very tricky of them to be extremely vague about the actual position that they had open. I think they are just trying to get people in the door to do other volunteer work. Since they have almost as many volunteers and actual employees, they are in constant need of new people. If anyone tries to get in there, make sure you have an actual position and know the details before wasting 4 hours at orientation only to find out that the position you wanted doesn't even exist.
