I applied to a lot of places (about 80) and only got 1 offer. It makes me worried that when it's time to apply for jobs again I won't get any offers. I would like to know if such a circumstance is typical. A postdoc colleague of mine told me, "At least you have a postdoc." We both had a tough time in the current job market.
