Re: last comment from mw85
I'm not "bitter." But I have actually looked at the numbers and been watching job listings for the last six years.
I'm optimistic about my career. Doesn't mean I need to be optimistic about the job market in general, or your or any other individual's prospects on the market.
Since I don't know anything about you or your skills, I'm forced to assume you're a perfectly average potential PhD candidate. Which means that, statistically speaking, your chances of ever
landing a tenure-track position are significantly less than 50%. It's worse than a coin toss, optimistic or not.
