14 applications, 11 states
In case you're curious, here's the geography of my job hunt so far. Green states have schools which have requested letters of recommendation, brown states I've applied to and so far heard nothing, orange states I've lost hope on (2+ months since deadline and no word). Stars show the status of schools in states where I've applied to more than 1 job.
It's actually really interesting to look at the map. You can see that my obvious target area is the northern Midwest, but I am not trying to shun the west coast (just southern California). I'd be happy to apply for jobs in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and NorCal, but I haven't seen any that would be a good fit. On the other hand, I am not aiming for Texas, there just happen to be good jobs there.
