eJobs Transparency 
APSA has implemented a new feature that allows job posters a way to share information with job candidates about the status of the hiring process for a particular job search.

This new benefit will inform the job candidate:

When jobs are posted
When phone interviews begin
When fly out interview calls begin
When a job search has concluded


3 Reasons Why You Should Read the APSA eJobs Report if You Care about the Job Market
APSA Research analyzed job postings’ data from eJobs for the six-month period from July 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. Here is what we found.


Why You Should Pay More Attention to the Benefits in your Job Offer
Salaries for newly hired faculty varied by type of position offered with the highest salaries offered to tenured faculty, followed by tenure track, then non-tenure-track faculty.  The 2017-2018 APSA Departmental Survey asked chairs of departments offering degrees and courses in Political Science and Government to report average salaries for their newly hired faculty by rank in the department. The full report can be found here.

ejobs-button-fullAPSA eJobs is the most comprehensive database of jobs related to political science, accessible to members. The eJobs platform is updated daily with new job listings and candidate resumes, and is fully searchable by field of interest, employer or candidate name, region, keyword, position, salary, institution type, and most recent postings. APSA departmental and institutional members have access to post and view job listings on our eJobs site as a part of their membership. 

eJobs and non-discrimination practices: APSA promotes non-discrimination practices across the discipline, including in the hiring policies of departments and institutions. eJobs reflects this commitment with the inclusion of two fields on the eJobs submission form. Learn more about the eJobs and non-discrimination practices.   

How does eJobs work?

Job Candidates

All job seekers can access eJobs; however, APSA members enjoy unique benefits including access to the full content of job listings. In addition, members can share their information with potential employers by posting their CVs to the database and indicating their availability for in-person interviews at the Annual Meeting Interview Service.
Non-member job candidates have limited access to eJobs. They can search the job listings and view titles, but cannot view the contents nor post CVs. Due to the significant benefits offered through membership, we encourage non-member job candidates to join APSA

APSA eJobs provides year-round, online publicity for political science employment opportunities to 15,000 APSA members and job candidates. All interested employers can post positions; however, the costs and benefits differ for members and non-members.

As a benefit of departmental and institutional membership, members may search for and post job listings as well as view and search candidate CVs. Employers who are not departmental members may advertise positions for a fee, and once they've advertised a position, can search the job candidate resumes.

To find out if your department or institution has an APSA account or membership, please contact Member Services at [email protected] or (202) 483-2515.
