I'm wondering what people think about whether philosophy couples ought to go on the job market together. Does going separately compromise the chances of getting jobs in the same university or area? Or is this whole thing such a crapshoot anyway that it doesn't matter? Is there even received wisdom on this? I've heard very different advice given to people with the two body problem.I have a little experience with this problem, but no concrete advice and no idea whether my strategy is a winning one in the long term. Mrs. Zero is an academic in another field--whose job market situation is even more horrible than mine--and she's managed to find adjunct-level work wherever we've had to live. As of right now, we're just hoping to keep it up. We'll cross the tenure track bridge when we come to it.
