Communication Jobs Are Up

Inside Higher Ed
October 23rd, 2014

The number of faculty job openings in communication has doubled since 2009, and rose 12 percent in 2013, according to new data from the National Communication Association.
The data and analysis from the association are much more optimistic than are reports coming out of other humanities and social sciences disciplines, many of which are seeing modest growth if any, and are struggling to get their openings back to pre-recessionary totals.
Also unlike some disciplines, the number of faculty job openings in communication outpaces the number of new Ph.D.s in the field.
Like many disciplinary associations, the NCA tracks openings in the various places it provides for departments to announce searches. Many openings in various fields are not listed with their associations, so the communication data aren't complete. But generally, the association reports mirror overall hiring trends, even if their may understate the total number of openings.
