Got a response from a Diane Norton last Friday afternoon about the job I put above. She wanted a more thorough explanation of my job history and where I found out about the job. Thing is, I mention where I find the job in the first sentence in the first paragraph in my cover letter. Always do.

Tried a site's auto-apply feature. Good and bad things about it. Good thing is that I applied to quite a lot of positions in just one day. Bad thing is, most of the positions that were applied to, I didn't qualify for or never would apply to in the first place. So, I stopped the auto-apply feature. Means I'll have to do the work myself now, but at least I'll know what I'm applying for.

Since last Wednesday I've applied to 25 positions, which are listed below in chronological order.
