663 of you were selected as finalists. Congratulations, and good luck securing an appointment!
About 1/3 of you have veterans' preference, which is higher than I've seen in the past. While it's not a guarantee of a job, it does give you an advantage.
In the past, some of your enterprising fellow PMFs have started and maintained a community spreadsheet for listing positions and such. If you happen to do the same, let me know and I will make sure it's linked somewhere.
Also in the past, I had operated some polls to get a sense of the usefulness of the job fair. In light of this year's virtual job fair, I'd be interested to compare with other years. I'm also especially interested in how the sequester and ongoing budget issues affect you all, so I will take suggestions on how best to conduct that survey as well, if all of you are interested.
Finally, I have to say I am incredibly pleased about the way the PMF site is displaying the 2013 finalists list. I was able to copy it and paste it into a spreadsheet, which means I don't have to spend gobs of time cleaning up the data. However, I don't have the applicant and semifinalist data in the same state. Would anyone like to do this? For now, I don't care about normalizing the school names (for instance, Harvard University versus Harvard Law School; both are Harvard), just getting them into my database. In fact, I probably have data from other years that I just haven't had the time to clean up, if anyone is interested.
