Reminder: Academic Postings are acceptable on ShovelBums

R. Joe Brandon
 


Hey all,

I wanted to remind you academic postings are also allowed on ShovelBums. I have not often promoted this aspect of ShovelBums. However the inevitable tax squeeze that many countries are going to be feeling this fall from the spring contraction in the global economy (and tax revenue) will likely result in a choking of fund for higher level education. As a result, any openings for positions at these institutions needs to get as wide of coverage as economically as possible to maximize their ability to get highly qualified candidates. 

Because ShovelBums has been active since 1999 and has helped fill over 60,000 positions at all levels there are now enough “old timers” in academia who once used ShovelBums for themselves back in the day ;-)  These profesionals know that the positions that come across ShovelBums are not just the entry level “ShovelBum” level postings and that they run all the way up the ladder to regional historic officers.  The reality of ShovelBums is that it is so profoundly boring that only serious professionals make up the 12,000+ recipients. And many of these same professionals are also highly qualified contenders for academic positions, but because of the realities of the job market they moved into CRM, Government, etc... instead of academia to make ends meet, and are not actively perusing the numerous academic jobs boards. But they are likely on ShovelBums. And if they are not? The field is small enough that with 12,000+ members one of the members will know the person who is ideally qualified for your programs unique needs and easily forward them the relevant email.

The best thing is that a posting on ShovelBums for an academic Anthropology, Archaeology, CRM position is only $100, but, because we all know how, errrr, frugal(?) department chairs can be. If your department does not feel ShovelBums provides a reasonable number of qualified applicants, there is no charge. I am really quite (painfully) flexible in working to make sure anyone who uses ShovelBums to find an employee is happy. And if you find your employee on one of the $300-$1400 jobs boards, and not through ShovelBums? Just let me know and I will waive the fee. ShovelBums is all about service to you. And I guarantee you, there is no professional service with the reach of ShovelBums that has enough confidence in their business model, to offer you that and also be helping the community grow with highly qualified applicants.

If you are interested you can easily join ShovelBums to post your announcement using these directions http://www.shovelbums.org/index.php/how-and-why-shovelbums 

And if you are a fellow ShovelBum and you know your old department is not on the list consider sending this to someone at the main office to let them know (though someone there should be posting positions on the department info board and profs should be using this as an example of where to find jobs after school, just sayin’ ;-)

ShovelBums = Reaching the entire population of Anthro/Arch professionals in the world almost instantly. ShovelBums just works. 

Best,

R. Joe

So about those Field Schools… re any running? Is there a need/want for ShovelBums to put out a directory?

R. Joe Brandon
 



So are any Field Schools running this summer? I was working on building a new directory for Field Schools this spring when the lockdown happened and I started hearing of a lot of cancelations so I shelved it until later this year. But if things have changed in the area where you work and you are safely able to keep yours running, are you? And if so, are your numbers down for prospective students? If they are I can pull together a more casual directory, likely just an email based version. If ShovelBums can help I will do what I can to make it happen. 

If you are running a field school and would like to get a last minute announcement out please reply and let me know. 

Best,

R. Joe


An observation on the economy based on ShovelBums postings

R. Joe Brandon
 

Hey all,
 
I hope you are all doing well and weathering these unprecedented events as best as you are able. If nothing else archaeologists have been experts as social distancing since, well Heinrich Schliemann, lol. 
 
I am well aware of how these events have negatively effected our industry and our peers. I do believe, based on traffic on ShovelBums that things are looking up, at least for the short term. ShovelBums postings for May 2020 matched 2018’s numbest and beat 2016 and 2017 numbers, but fell a little shy of May’s 2019 numbers, you can view ShovelBums job posting history here (scroll down the page for the numbers): https://groups.io/g/ShovelBums and a snippet I have attached here. January and February 2020 were two of the best months for those respective months since 2008 (which coincides with the advent of the last major recession as well as me finally starting to charge for posting on ShovelBums). Then March hit like a shit ton of bricks and saw postings drop to the level they were near the bottom of the last recession in 2010. April was fair to middling on a month that has always been pretty scattershot, weather depending.
 
So while this is a pretty gross level overview, the raw numbers of postings on ShovelBums seem to be a reasonable bellwether for the economy in general. June is lookin up already with 7 postings and only two days in. So let’s all keep our fingers crossed, our trowels sharp, and lab equipment clean ;-) 
 

Best,

R. Joe

Just a reminder. If you are looking at a job posting and can’t see the full email address to apply for a job…

R. Joe Brandon
 

 
Hey all,

Just an occasional reminder about a situation I hear about every once in awhile from a member. 
 
If you are visiting the ShovelBums jobs pages
 
 
or
 
 
and you see a job posting with an email address, but it is truncated this means you are not logged in to https://groups.io/g/ShovelBums. This is done to prevent email harvesting bots from scraping public facing web pages. 
 
If you receive the ShovelBums email announcements you will see the full address. If you need to access it online, just be sure you are logged in to your Groups.io account. Click here to set your account up if you need it. 
 
I know, I know. It can be a PIA. But it does work to help prevent employer emails from getting spammed. 
 
Best,
 
R. Joe
