Ok first a little background.
• I currently run a department of about 13 people, within a larger department of about 20. My direct boss is leaving and I would like to apply for his position. I was actually in the same position as I am now when he was hired to run the department, This was fine because a year and a half ago I would not have had any idea how to run the whole department, now I feel I can, so I am going to apply for this position. My direct boss (the one who is leaving) knows that I am going to apply and fully supports my decision and has been very helpful I have already discussed in length my plans and goals within the department if I was to get the job.
• My question is. There are some basic screening questions that must be answered and on the job posting it says to email it to Jobs@mywork.
Would this be the best thing to do or should I deliver a copy directly to the persons who would be hiring?
