I thought you might be interested in a posting on the effects of decentralization of job advertising on both job seekers and letter writers. Personally, I hate it. I most certainly appreciate that I no longer have to pay to see ads, but in terms of being able to plan your semesters has gone completely out the window, and I am sure it is even harder on letter writers. My first deadline this year is Sept 22, followed by on on Sept 25th. Might Philjobs consider scheduling the posting of jobs?
What do others think? As a letter writer (though the season is still early), I've not found this to be a problem, esp. because many candidates use Interfolio. But it may still make it more complicated for the candidates to manage the varying deadlines. Job seekers may, if they want, post without their name, but please include a real e-mail address (which will not appear).
