More recent analyses of the pathologist job market conclude that in general, pathology trainees can find satisfying jobs in reasonable amounts of time. In a recent survey of first-time job seekers during 2012 through 2016, most respondents reported they found a job within 1 year of searching. Nearly one-third of those respondents received multiple job offers, and there was a high level of satisfaction with the job that they chose. Unpublished results from 2017 show similar, if not better, job search experiences.
The current condition of the job market for new graduates emerging from the cocoon of residency or fellowship training programs remains good, according to the detailed, informative, and reassuring report by Gratzinger et al, summarizing the job market surveys from the past 5 years of the College of American Pathologists (Northfield, Illinois), in this issue of the Archives.
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Graduate Medical Education Committee has during the past 5 years sent an annual job search survey each June to CAP junior members and fellows in practice 3 years or less who have actively searched for a non-fellowship position. Pathology residents and fellows seeking their first position have faced a relatively stable job market during the last 5 years, with most accepting positions with which they were satisfied.
Compared with 2017, results show an overall increase in salaries for most laboratory occupations surveyed except cytogenetic technologists, laboratory information systems personnel, and performance improvement or quality assurance personnel. Geographically, laboratory professionals from urban areas earned more than their rural counterparts.
