    These are the highest paying jobs because they're not really easy jobs at all. I can't imagine myself doing any of these. Sometimes it's not really about the money. I'm happy with what I have now. Thanks for the list. http://www.newrugbyshirts.co.uk/magners-celtic-league/cardiff-blues/

    Positions noted for internal hires only are classified as "Status" positions. Sites like USAJobs filter vacancy annoucements accordingly. And it is required by law all positions be posted, even for a short period of time(positions with an open period of 10 days or less could be assumed already have someone in mind).

    I believe by Law they have to post all job opening before they fill the position, even if they have a good idea who will be getting the position.

    Why would NOT want these things advertised? It's more "in house" than you realize because it really IS "in house" - their own.

    I agree with you for the most part, but it still stands, you'll never know if you don't try.

    This is really a joke when it comes to the jobs. Most of these positions are going to be filled with in house promotions. When an agency knows they are going to promote from within, they shouldn't advertise the job. This is a rule that should be addressed to clearly show that these jobs are not going to be filled by outside hires.
