A year ago I submitted my CV to an institution of higher learning and they indicated that they would contact me if any openings for instructors became available. At that time all positions in my field were filled.
I just discovered that as of November 1, new positions were posted on their jobs page, including one for which I am qualified. They haven't contacted me. They have posted an applications deadline of the first of next month for the position.
Should I feel that they have essentially rejected me already? Has it been too long since I filed my information with them? Is it likely to have been simply an oversight?
I would appreciate advice, especially from those who may have been in a similar situation before. What should I do at this point?
CLARIFICATION: The "year ago" was a round figure; it was more than ten months, and so far as I am aware, no position in my field had been available during those months, making this the first opening since my CV submission. From comments received so far, this may not matter, as the CV could have conceivably been forgotten almost as soon as it had been received.
