Good luck Leo!

I'm still waiting, not knowing what to think. It is "next week"... right? Oh well. I should focus on my new job applications and just see what happens tomorrow before I lose all hope.

Well, I think the season is over for me.  No new posting in tt positions in my field for over a month.  Interview this week may lead to an offer, but would require a demotion from my current tt position. 

Better luck in the fall...

To everyone else, good luck!!!

Thanks boys and gals. One more effort, let's do it! (anyway, these are the last stretches of the season, things are getting slow, so it can be done; get over that resigned attitude!)
Dr. Ladybug, we envy you to have something to fall back on, let's meet again in the fall!

(and I still have some regrets; I was that close... I AM that close!)

I admit, I only applied to one position this year, so I guess that I got an interview out of it was good.  I didn't know for sure until March that I wanted out for sure, so I missed the bulk of the ads in the fall.

We'll all find something though.  Hey, in another year, hopefully there will be one vacant position in my current location :D

Ugh, I am spending part of my day working on yet another application. It's good that there are still things out there, but it would be nice to have a break from the roller coaster and time suck of the job search. My to do list of applications now has deadlines that extend into July. July! It never ends.

Oh, and good luck leo!

I feel relieved that I have no applications to do at the moment. It's so rare! But I'm still on the roller coaster as I am still waiting on the school that requested my reference letters last week, so while I have an application break, I don't have a roller coaster break. Trying to put it out of my mind!

Yes, DLB, get 'em next year! I, for one, do not have employment lined up after next week. Yikes!

And I'm still waiting. Last Friday of the month, right before finals, just after interviews and reference checks... something's got to happen today, right?

Sorry, Data. The silver lining is that you'll have time to apply for other positions. From what I understand:
1. Now is the prime time for those nice multiple year fellowships, even better than three months ago, and
2. Last-resort adjunct jobs show up during summer.

Keeping fingers crossed for you! Hopefully you'll be too happy celebrating to come back today and report news.

Ugh.  Just got the second "We have found another candidate that best meets our needs" e-mail after two CC campus interviews this month.  I'm starting to think that I really suck at interviews and teaching demonstrations.

Don't think that -- it's just two.  Breath deeply, look in the mirror ala SNL, and say "... gosh-darn-it it's because I like myself...."  Good luck!

Without giving any details that would "out" me, I can say that the news in a recent administrative e-mail means that both jobs for which I interviewed AND my current job are probably kaput.  

Great...

Crapedy crap.  I'm sorry. 

I just declared it Friday night (imagine that) and announced that I was going to eat a brownie.  I wish I could share it with you.
