Hiring and applications numbers...
have you seen an increase or decrease in the number of applicants? A local here had 12 for one position. (And they are one of the best starting pay & good bennies)none passed....next batch was a few more. But, not much.
What is it like on your dept. and area? Lots of people wanting the job?

I think you'll find that unless the department has a reputation for being absolutely horrible, there will always be far more applicants than there are positions available.

Wow, only 12 applicants for one position? Where is that? Those are good odds if you are a competent candidate. Usually here in CA, the average turnout for one spot at a "small" dept. is a few hundred or there is usually a limit to how many apps they accept. City of Torrance had 1600 applicants for 12 spots. But right now is a good time to get hired as the Baby Boomers are on their way to retirement.
