Job Market Woes

There are times that I just can't calm down.

The academic job market is the most ruthless enterprise I've ever experienced. The search process is so vague and convoluted that it is a wonder that anyone gets hired for any job any where. I had an interview last Monday at a school and was told that I would hear from them by early this week. The week is halfway over, and I have yet to hear from them. Either a) they are slow on meeting and have yet to make a decision or b) I am not top choice and they are seeing if/negotiating with top choice for their job. I'm going to call the school in a minute and see if I can get some answers out of the secretary. I'll keep us updated.
