Dear Joyce: My biggest job hunt problem is getting inside to see managers -- I can't get past the secretary. Other than calling outside normal business hours so the secretary is not there, what methods can you suggest? B.R.R.Dear B.R.R.: A savvy secretary asks two types of questions to determine whether you have a legitimate claim on the boss's time: "Who are you?" and "What do you want?" How you handle the probe determines whether you get the boss's ear or not.Don't lie to the secretary about your intent -- she or he will know when you ask for "Dave" and say "it's a personal matter" that you're either a salesperson, charitable solicitor or job hunter -- and ring off.Don't leave messages on voice mail systems.

IT IS ONE of those confounding questions that requires an answer as firm as quicksand: How big is Maryland's state bureaucracy?Just the classified employees number 45,000. If you add in unclassified employees, the number is 59,000. If you count temporary employees, the total is 60,000.That's what the state personnel department uses: 60,199 exactly, as of last June 30. But this doesn't count workers at the University of Maryland and the Mass Transit Administration or contract employees.But if you add UM staffers, the total rises to 75,000.
