Does an article in second-round review at a respected peer-reviewed journal make you more competitive at the job market, at least more than no publication to put on the CV? I submitted last October in order to have a publication out for this coming job cycle, but alas, the first round took 5 months and the second round is taking almost 4 months now. I am starting to worry that the editor won't get back to me in time for me to put "forthcoming" on my CV.
Does winning the best student paper prize (such as Bestor, Roseberry, Condon) make your CV more competitive for pos-doc or TT job, or does it make you look like a - well, grad student? Some publish winning manuscripts on their journals but others don't. So I'm wondering if this type of prize enhances your competitiveness in itself.

When a job post says "the geographical area is open," but the department already has a faculty member who specializes in the exact same country where you conducted your fieldwork, then how true is the line in the job ad, that it is "open"? My sense is that the already low chance of getting that job becomes even slimmer if your geographical area overlaps with the existing faculty's. My discipline is anthro, FYI.
