    For every tenure track position, we get around 100 applicants, 50 of which are unqualified for the position, so there are 50 serious candidates and one will get the job, so the changes are 2 %. I would recommend to apply to at least 50 positions to land a job. But make sure you are applying to relevant positions. Do not waste your time applying to a position that require expertise beyond your experience.
