The Wiki Job Market

Here is another post that falls into the Why Didn't I Think of That category.

As I mentioned in a previous post, we are on the job market this year. That is, my department at our mid-sized public state school is looking to hire a new faculty member on the tenure-track for next fall.

While it is nice to be on this side of that game, it is still surprisingly nerve-wracking and somewhat desperate feeling.

My colleague stumbled on this site which is essentially a bulletin board for the Economics Job Market in which people are allowed to change the site and update it with new information in a fashion similar to Wikipedia.

True to the discipline itself, more information will make the market more perfect.
