Personnel Department Report - May 2021

Membership trends
The trends in changes in membership as of April 1, 2021 can be viewed here. For explanations and cautions about accuracy, please read this post.

Explanation notes: Once a person posts, they are considered a member for the next 30 days. That means that if a person stops posting, they aren’t removed from the membership numbers until the next month. That means: (1) if a new member never posts, they are not counted on this chart, (2) if a person posts once and doesn’t post again, they will be counted as a new member in the month they posted, and then a member who left STF in the following month.

Placements overall
Placements for May were up slightly compared to April, however we are still overall seeing a decrease in new member numbers compared to previous year.

For Mayl, we had 7 applications, with one being a returning member. 5 of the applications were placed by the Personnel Department, 2 were rejected for being non-responsive..

Departments
Trends

  • Two-year trend of department requests and placements can be found here. Well, we ran out of room to place new medical officers - it’s still a popular choice (tied with science this month), but we had to start placing them in other departments (primarily science) because of how popular it has been recent.
  • Two-year trend of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th choices can be found here.

First Choice Placed In
Engineering 1 (20%) 1 (20%)
Medical 3 (60%) 1 (20%)
