Decision Science News loves Marketing (the academic discipline). Chris Janiszewski and Geeta Menon have continued the wonderful tradition (previously carried out by Peter Dickson) of surveying the world’s marketing departments and finding out how many candidates are on the market, how many schools are hiring, etc. How cool is that? Read Janiszewski and Menon’s survey on the Marketing job market.

The not so wonderful news is that it isn’t a great year to be a job candidate, with a record-setting 3.35 rookies per position. DSN readers can improve their chances by reading Decision Science News’ advice for the marketing job market.

Thank you for participating in the 2009 Marketing Academia Labor Market Survey. We realize there is a lot of uncertainty in the market this year, so we are particularly grateful to you for having responded speedily to this survey to enable us to compile the data before June.

Attached is our summary of the results. Please forward this document to colleagues in your department, your recruiting committee, PhD program coordinators, any PhD students who are on the job market, and to anyone else you think may benefit from this information. Please note that we are only sending this report to one person in each school, so please distribute as you deem fit.

This was our first year conducting this survey; a huge debt of gratitude to Peter Dickson who conducted it for the past 17 years. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail either one of us.

    Hi DSN,

    Could you tell me who are the “famous” DS Marketing Profs? I am trying to dig up some good decision and jugdement papers on marketing decisions (both marketers and consumers).

    Warmest regards,

    Well, I can only get in trouble trying to decide who is famous 🙂

    A quick search on the Society for Judgement and Decision Making member list finds some recognized names with “Marketing” listed somewhere in their mailing address. I would suggest becoming a member (which will give you access to their mailing list) and trying that.

    […] the job market for business school profs may be lousy this year, grad students might want to take note of this posdoctoral opportunity at Duke. Duke […]
