2023 Who Went Where Report

The 2023 WWW survey results are now available in the 2023 WWW Final Report. For the past 21 years,
AMA DocSIG has conducted surveys on doctoral students in the job-seeking stage, providing insights
into the job market. Reports from 2003 to 2021 can be downloaded here.

Despite the pandemic’s impact on the job market from 2019 to 2021, we encouraged students to share
their job search experiences, resulting in variations in the 2020-2021 report compared to previous ones.
Our survey had two parts: Part 1 collected basic information, including the candidate’s name and
institutions, while Part 2 anonymously gathered data on job market experiences, teaching, publications,
and salary.

We promoted survey participation through AMA DocSIG and ELMAR listservs, as well as social media
platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn. If your school wasn’t contacted, please provide your marketing
department doctoral program coordinator’s contact information to Reza Pedarpour,

Md Fourkan and Reza Pedarpour from Kent State University designed and administered the surveys,
with input from our volunteer review team to continually enhance the Who Went Where (WWW)
survey and report.

Congratulations to the new Assistant Professors of Fall 2023! The highly anticipated Who Went Where
report is proudly presented by AMA DocSIG.
