Do you find the May Chart of the Month visualizations interesting and want to read more about eJobs? Here are 3 reasons you should read the APSA eJobs report if you care about the job market:
- The peak timing (in August), number, and annual distribution of eJobs ads is stable over the long-term, indicating its status as a clearinghouse for academic positions in political science.
- Trends in academic subfields for new positions in political science may not surprise you (IR, American, and Comparative are hiring), or may indeed surprise you (it’s not entirely about methods; Race, gender, and ethnic studies positions advertised are comparable in number).
- Most positions advertised at eJobs are tenure-track positions, but we do not know what percentage of these are filled each year (yet).
