My spouse and I landed dual TT jobs this year (and had to turn down another dual offer), so it is possible!!!! 2) Congrats! That is awesome! 3) Anyone want to marry me and try to find a job together?
2
Didn't get any this year. Congrats to all who did. Trying again this fall. Cheers all.

Another had better fit, that other doesn't publish, can't teach, and is a lazy a$$, just like the rest of our department...a perfect fit!

I love seeing all the anonymous animals. I keep looking them up. Just learned what an axolotl is! Thanks!

35
Your research and teaching experience rock!!
36
Yes, you need to attend that "conference" in a popular tourist destination with a beach
37
woo, this section is new! I like the positive motivation from others! No secret here, just keep trying!
38
You can get a job outside of academia that will make you just as (if not more) happy as a tenure-track job. 9 to 5 is actually pretty awesome.
39
You have published more peer-reviewed scientific papers than 99.9% of humans. 2) OMG... I almost wrote this exact same one. Nice! 3) LOVE!
40
You look awesome in your interview outfit!
41
(from above)... but not too awesome. I mean, you look super professional and confident, not too casual, not too sexy, but just right. - exactamundo!

43
it is really hard not to start getting really depressed and keep the motivation up for applications at this point. how are others coping? 2) I was totally there last year. I just... stayed in the present. I focused on the things I could change and do something about. Do what you can with your hands and your brain now. You have no control over how they perceive your effort. You do have control over this, though. It is part "serenity now!" and part blasting through the wall. You can do it. You've done all of these other applications up til now. You can do the remaining ones. And if you have to do it again next year, trust me. It is much easier the next time around. But above all... don't be afraid to change. Try something new for one of these last applications. Try a new take. Maybe it will work! I wish you lots of luck and perserverance. OP) thanks! I'm a bit afraid to change my materials much because I have gotten 2 Skype interviews and one on-campus so far (but they hired their VAP). Still waiting to see if I will get another on-campus after a recent Skype interview. Coping with rejection after an interview that I felt went really well was really hard, and I'm afraid I've been rejected again after the recent Skype since it was a week ago now and I haven't heard anything. It's just getting harder and harder to move on, and my current position ends in June. I don't know if I'll have a fighting chance next year if I don't manage to at least get a VAP position this year. :( Sorry, maybe this counts more as whining (or venting) than positive addirmation, but thought I'd post here as I (and I'm sure lots of others in the same position) are having similar experiences and need positive affirmations and not responses from a lot of the jerks who like to post on the Venting page. 4) I think you should trust your instincts but also welcome change. Scientists are really bad at accepting change, but when so much is out of your control, I think it's really useful to be able to let things roll off. Life is about so much more than academia... it really is. OP) Thanks everyone - I DID get an on-campus interview at that place! Thank goodness! 5) YAYYYYYYY! Congratulations!
44
There're still lots of jobs to be won 2) but less and less motivation....
45
You are an awesome public speaker and your research seminar rocks!
46
I know several idiots with crap pubs and minor grants who have TT jobs. If they can do it, SO CAN YOU!!! :D x3 (but maybe they got that TT job 30 years ago?) OP Again) - NOPE! I see it happen every hiring year. 2) Just to give even more positive spin - I have crap pubs and minor grants and I just landed a TT job!!!!!! WHOOOOHOOO! Granted it's at a small LAC but it's a TT job!!! Oh, but I don't think I'm an idiot.
47
The potato job is open again. 2) I am SO on it. 3) LOL
48
I had a Skype interview and I didn't bomb it! 2) Wohooo!!
49
I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darnit, people like me.
50
You may never understand what is really going on with search committees. They can say they are really looking for one thing and are really looking for something entirely different.
51
That strange number calling isn't a telemarketer, it's a SC chair!
