    • Any updates? I have not heard anything.
      • I haven't heard anything, either, other than an application-received acknowledgement in October. I did see a search committee member post on social media that they were interested in industry folks, emphasizing no PhD-required, etc.

Word on the Street[]

Gossip etc. goes here

Question: Some other wikis have a "Who got the job" section where people actually list who got what jobs. I like this idea due to both transparency and pure gossipy interest, but I don't want to implement if it's going to ruffle feathers or cause conflict. Thoughts? - Prof LowBrow

^^^I would not do this. Personally, I think it is a very bad idea. If a person gets a job offer, there might be a really good reason they want to hold off on telling their current institution or announcing publicly. It's one thing to share this info via whisper networks, but to post someone else's offer business publicly (especially if they haven't posted about it publicly themselves) is very sketch imo. Given how anxiety ridden these boards can get, it also seems like it would open the "person who got the job" up to rude comments or undo vitriol. I dunno. Just sounds like a bad idea to me.

  • 10/18 I moderate a wiki that posts names (Musicology/Music Theory). We have done this for many years with minimal drama, and our rule is that winning candidates are always welcome to post their own name. In the music studies discipline, posting your own name on the wiki is a common/accepted way to announce to the field that you got a job. If you are posting a name other than your own, the poster must have public corroborating evidence - a press release, the department website, the candidate's own public website (not private social media), etc. In general, until late summer each year, the majority of names posted were placed there by the candidates themselves. We do not allow posting of names of winning candidates that were only heard "through the grapevine" or on the winner's private social media, etc. Hope this helps. -5120j
  • 12/6 I think I'm going to take this approach! Thanks 5120j

The rumor is that UC Davis is going to post a tenure-track job in MEDIATED INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION soon.

NOTE: Please do not complain about jobs not being added to the wiki- if you see a job that isn't on the Wiki, add it yourself! Sometimes departments add jobs themselves, but more frequently it's a passerby just like yourself. I added like 80% of the jobs last year and I am just a random professor procrastinating from my actual job. You, too, can do that!

9/15 - was asked to interview next week on Zoom for SDSU for their PR position xo, lowly PhD student

9/20 - was asked to do a Zoom interview for SDSU, too. But I guess the one above was talking about San Diego State, and I'm talking about South Dakota State

Question: The heading at the top says no adjunct positions here. Is there anywhere on the jobs wiki where I could post a media studies adjunct job? Thx

Answer: You are more than welcome to make your own page for non-TT jobs - in fact I think that's a good idea b/c people keep cluttering up this page with crappy VAPs and 1-year contract jobs.

11/9 - Is it safe to assume that if one person reports receiving a Zoom interview that anyone who had not is no longer being considered? Or are there instances where committees do not send out invites all at once?

  • Generally yes. It's possible that they might return to other applicants if the first set of interviewees doesn't work out but unlikely.

11/10 - Question: Anyone have any insight on the BC job? There’s an update from 10/12 indicating that a Zoom interview was scheduled, but the ad says they wouldn’t start reviewing apps until 11/6. Is it likely they began scheduling zoom interviews nearly a month before the deadline?
