Job Market Information

Here you have some useful information for economists going to the Job Market.


The job market for economists is a way to establish a connection between universities and other institutions looking for candidates, and those Ph. D. candidates in the search for a job. Those people planning to complete their Ph.D. in spring or summer, should go to the market the previous winter. The main meetings take place in conferences (AEA Meeting), or interviews at the European Job Market in December. Therefore, in order to opt for interviews in the job market, Ph.D. candidates must register for the meeting(s) they wish to attend. Timing is different depending on which job market you are going to. This is what you will find in this page.
