(Update: See below for a revised graph and a link to CDJ's data [thanks, CDJ!].)
In the permanent thread, there have been some questions about whether or not this is a bad market year. We have some preliminary numbers c/o Carolyn Dicey Jennings:
Job Seekers: Yes, there have been fewer ads this year at PhilJobs (but it looks best for value theorists) @JadedPhD pic.twitter.com/G3kiKzk4Jf— carolyndiceyjennings (@cdj140) October 16, 2015
Looks like jobs are down across the board except for in value theory.
I'm hoping that this is just a function of the market being extended by PhilJobs's publishing schedule (round-the-clock), the declining role of the Eastern APA in the job market, and the move to Skype (or that departments are skipping first-round interviews altogether).
But that's probably just naive optimism.
@JadedPhD Ooops! I think that the date ranges on the x-axis are not right. I re-did the thing. pic.twitter.com/pZeM3B8UFY— carolyndiceyjennings (@cdj140) October 18, 2015
