We've already had the discussion about whether or not it is a good idea to report the names of people with authors in the previous discussion. See the IR blog for why they are not doing it. What exactly is the community good that is being served by revealing such names? None at all - if you applied for the job, all you need to know is that an offer is out, and it is not to you. So if there is some risk to people with offers, it seems to me that there is no community benefit that outweighs this consideration.

"If you don’t like how the game is played here you can go back to your beloved IR blog."

What a stupid statement.

First, it's up for debate whether we should post names with offers or not. As such, 7:46AM has every right to post his opinion (and to point out that on the best-run blog of the lot they don't).

Second, "love it or leave it" didn't work for the Nixon crowd in the 60s, and it doesn't work here. It's pretty idiotic to tell someone on a Comparative rumors blog to go back to the IR rumor blog if they don't like how things are here. Or perhaps you just missed out on the whole subfields in the discipline thing?

Note all the assumptions made in this statement. The poster asserts without evidence that there is no cost to the individual, and even that the individual may gain.

Then the poster asserts that there may actually be a cost (thus contradicting their previous statements) but claims some unidentified community benefit.

The whole posting starts with the information that this individual has received no job offers.

Don't you think the opinion of the impacted party--someone whose actually received an offer--would be most relevant here?

Actually it works pretty well, because you have no choice but to accept when someone posts personal information about a job offer. You can harangue them etc., but if they post it you are pretty much out of luck.

Yes, I guess the normative question, as always, IS up for debate. But, as 10:40am, rightly points out, it's not up for debate whether we _do_ post names or not.

So, to be in good anonymous blog form, all those who don't love it, and don't leave it, welcome to suboptimal behavior -- on YOUR part. Anonymous rumor mills exist _precisely_ to subvert the conventions you so fervently desire to impose upon them.

Going back to a much earlier debate, this IS ironic.

Just a hunch, but I'm guessing that the mean reason why you don't find the first argument more compelling is that you've not received any offers or you are not, in fact, on the market.

Maybe the best reason is the practical one. Posting names might be counterproductive. Information really seems to have dried up this year, and its not because of stricter moderation. Its because the moderation didn't happen quickly enough. Without new information daily, job blogs are only slightly less useless than the old departmental blogs.

First, in answer to a query above, USSC has an offer under consideration.

The reason I won't give a name is because...I have an offer, and was recently turned down for another position because - I was explicitly told - they knew I had another offer and didn't think I'd accept. Whether or not this is true (which it isn't), it should have been my decision to make, based on a host of considerations that people who read and write on blogs rarely know of or consider.

So, to inject some empirical content into this fatuous debate, there ARE costs. And for those who think that one offer per person should suffice, and I shouldn't be crying over spilt milk, what's really more fascist? That attitude, or the IR blog's professionalism?

I have no problem deleting comments that refer to offers to particular individuals unless they post them themselves. The problem is that I am not monitoring the blog on a daily basis given that, like the rest of you, I am also on holiday. As a result, the posts will stay up long enough for interested parties to see them anyway. I could remove the comparative job rumors from the blog and someone else could start a strictly comparative blog that does monitor it more closely. Please let me know what you guys think.

Assumign their epxlanation is sincere, knowing you had an offer the instituion acted stupidly. Of course, you have to assume they were being truthful and not fudging as a way to overcome a split vote or in order to try to be kind and not tell you that they didnt want you of your own merit.

My department recently told a candidate that he would not be getting a job. but we put it very nicely rather than telling him that we thought he was unhirable.

On the other hand, one might also imagine that a chiar from one department might see that a candidate has an offer in hand and as a result make a stronger offer than they otherwise would in order to make it more appealing.

Of course, the candidate might not know that the offer was stronger becuse they dont have a baseline fom which to compare what the offer otherwise would have been--thus there might be a strong benefit to having names published too.

i am amazed at the reluctance to admit 5:53's point.

even before blogs, hiring decisions were made based on tactical considerations of what the offering committee thought were the chances the offer would be accepted. the calculus is simple: "if we make an offer to candidate 1, then have to wait for her to inevitably decline because she is competitive enough to have an offer, or for that matter we are already aware of an offer, from a more attractive department. meanwhile, we may have missed our window on candidate 2 in the interim, and now have to settle for candidate 3 or come up empty. whereas, we can go straight after candidate 2 and likely get him." and as i said, this thought process was worked through before blogs existed.

knowledge of an existing offer removes any incentive for "lesser or equivalent" departments to make offers (which is precisely where one would have otherwise hoped for more money being thrown at the problem, 9:14) ... so imagine how that is compounded now that there is knowledge of even more offers, thanks to these blogs.

and to 7:40, enjoy working at one of the two or three departments that wouldn't need to bother with these tactical concerns.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

9:14 is smart. Besides 5:53's loss is someone else's gain. Most of us have been part of candidate hires and know that much of the hiring process is a crap shoot. Should Candidate 5:53's loss bother me? Well, if I was in Candidate 5:53's position I would certainly say yes. If, however, I was in Candidate X's position (the guy/gal who ended up getting the job) I'd like the free access of information. Being neither candidate 5:53 or X I side, as I almost always do, with those saying more information is always better if there is no great reason for censorship. I suspect the blog's that provide this unwanted censorship will fade into the ether as others, for a very low cost these days, replace them with websites carrying greater volumes of information. So enjoy the power while you've got it.

This discussion is retarded. Either someone lied to 5:53, or 5:53 didn't make it clear to the "lesser" department that 5:53 really wanted to go there. And if 5:53 had real reasons for wanting to go there, it shouldn't have been difficult to convince the lesser department of that. I was in the same position and it was not a difficult situation to negotiate.

If 5:53 didn't want to go there and just wanted the offer as a bargaining chip, then the lesser school's offer wouldn't matter, because if the schools were really that different in quality better school wouldn't bother bargaining against lesser school's offer. I've been there too.

And furthermore, schools always think they're a lot better than they actually are. I just find this story hard to buy unless the lesser school was a LOT worse than the better school. In which case, it's the poster's fault for not making his/her preferences clear to the school.

Really? I'm not. For the following reasons:

1 -- it's a stupid point.
2 -- that's not "reluctance" that you sense, it's outright disagreement.
3 -- 5:53 was lied to just as many, many others have been and will be. Period. Or, as 12:57 put it, 5:53 should be happy to not get the offer. Any department that back away from you because of some other offer you have is not a place you want to be.

And before you start crying again, I know what I am talking about, as I am on a search committee and have been on them in several other years.

Now move on to the rumors -- and don't post names if you don't want. And be prepared to "deal with it" when I do post them.

1) a department that doesn't offer you a job because of an anonymous blog is already demonstrating poor organizational and strategic tendencies.

2) if the department doesn't offer you a job because of hearing from someone else that you have another job offer, then

a) the anonymous job "norm" is irrelevant, and
b) this is a VERY STRONG sign that internal support for hiring you was less than over-the-top

3) MOST LIKELY, the search committee chair/chair of the department/your friend at the department was relieved to have a clearly plausible (to you, at least) story about why you didn't get the offer.

Look, we all get rejected for jobs. Nobody bats 1.000. Now get back to your research, and stop anonymously crying in public.

Anonymous bullying is clearly better, right? It seems that a few people want to impose some kind of name exposure on the more reasonable people. Yet no one still has made any sort of an argument for why people need to know who got an offer. There is no "right" to this information, and it does not really help anyone else on the market to get the actual name. Someone got the offer, you didn't, game over. Revealing names can have a number of consequences for those who are named. A lesser school may not make an offer when they hear that someone got a better one, but it still may be in that person's interest to get more offers. There are other potential scenarios. But the basic point is that it hurts no one to keep names out of the blog, and MAY hurt the candidate to be named, so why don't we just abide by that? Why risk harm, even if it is low probability, for absolutely no good reason?

But that argument is probably too reasonable for disappointed bloggers to deal with...I'll probaby just get a bunch of arrogant, insulting responses.

Do you really believe that you were denied an offer because of the blog posting? I mean, be serious about it. First, if you did have another offer, the normal practice would have been for you to tell the competing department about it. I have never heard of people being shy about receiving competing offers and it will have to come out at some point anyway. Second, no department, however badly they think of themselves, will just decide what you want for you. In other words, even if your other offer is from a better-ranked department that is situated in a better place to live, no one can be sure what your preferences are. Best thing to do if they like you is make the offer anyway (they've gone through all the trouble already) and give you a short deadline to decide if they are worried that you're unlikely to accept and they're thinking of going after an alternate. Third, if I understand you correctly, you did not even have another offer. When the chair fed you that BS about the blog info, you could have just said so. I am afraid this is when you would have found out the truth: they were not going to hire you anyway. I find the chair's attempt to be tactful really depressing: why not just tell you the truth? It does not reflect badly on you or your skills; there are thousands of reasons worthy candidates do not get offers that stem from internal politics in the department or from the vision it has about its future, to name just two common ones. Everyone I know who has had multiple interviews has been rejected a couple of times, even the stars.

10:39 assumes the previous poster is the one who was told that (s)he didn't get an offer because of a blog. Not true. This is a new poster. Try to get that into your thick heads.

I just wanted to make the point that there is no need to post names, for a number of other reasons. I agree that offers are unlikely to be issued solely on the basis of what is said in this blog. But I have heard from people on search committees that they do follow the blog, it may help them consider who is hot and who is not (perhaps more importantly) and thus naming names can affect individual opinions of particular candidates. Do I really have to lay out how this might actually have an influence?

10:39 just renews the response to the previous blogger, saying absolutely nothing new or interesting. And certainly doesn't answer my question for why the hell people actually feel they need or want to know who is getting offers.

But I do that that amount is NOT competitive with what departments that want to STAY in the top 20 are offering. Not even close. Double that, or just add more if the amount is spread over 5-6 years.

On occasion my department has not made an offer to a particular candidate (or perhaps not even interviewed the candidate) because it thought that person was a shoo-in for a position elsewhere where he or she had a particular "in." We have always been wrong when we did this. A department has to go aggressively after any candidate who applies or might apply who really fits the position and not make any assumptions about their preferences or the preferences of some other department. But as I said, we've made that mistake a few times.

But we've also learned from it. It's much wiser to go after the candidates we find the strongest, and then deal with any possible competing offers after the fact -- not in anticipation or prior to making an offer.

Occasionally this means we strike out completely. But that's a preferred outcome to auditing or editing out candidates without even giving them or ourselves a chance.

(I can't recall an instance in which we made a negative decision based on a rumor about a competing offer. If anything, competing offers tend to validate our own preference for a particular candidate.)

My sense is simply that many newly tenured folks wouldn't mind mitigating some of their salary compression. Even at private places like Emory, I'd guess compression is a problem and, realistically speaking, universities don't ever part with their money unless they have to, i.e. credible threat of exit.

Another way to rank departments.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reported a new ranking of departments (see below) based on faculty productivity, rather than reputation. The top ten political science departments are:

1. Wash U
2. Harvard
3. Yale
4. Stony Brook
5. Illinois
6. Kansas
7. Maryland
8. Princeton
9. Cal- Santa Barbara
10. Virginia

The 2005 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, by Academic Analytics, a company owned partially by the State University of New York at Stony Brook, ranks 7,294 individual doctoral programs in 104 disciplines at 354 institutions. It also ranks institutions in broader categories, like the humanities and biological sciences, as well as institutions as a whole
