[rspec-users] Rspec & Rails Nested Resources

Try assigns(:correspondence) instead. If that doesn't work, I would inspect the value of @job.correspondences.build (when run in the test). It's possible that stub_model is causing #build to return nil -- I don't remember the behavior off the top of my head and don't have a Ruby available to check. Anyway if it is nil then you'll need to do some more stubbing setup. stub_chain may be useful.
