However, the total number of advertisements for job postings in academia, which had been recently increasing but at a decelerating rate of growth, declined 1.5 percent in Q3 2016. This was the first decrease in higher education job postings since at least Q1 2013, regardless of quarter. The decline in higher education job postings was distributed throughout most categories of job postings, although some types of administrative and executive postings experienced incremental growth. In addition, a separate analysis of regional postings trends confirms the overall decline in job postings for higher education jobs was broad-based and not just concentrated or driven by any single section or area of the country.
The report analyzes the most current data from BLS and HigherEdJobs' posting trends from roughly 850 colleges and universities that have continuously subscribed to the company's unlimited posting plan for four years and, therefore, are able to post all of their job openings at no additional cost.
