The Hiring of An Economist

I am currently on the “Job Market.”  I will receive my Ph.D from UC-San Diego this spring and hope to have a job for next fall.  There are lots of advice papers on what graduate students should do to maximize their chances of getting a job.  Yet few graduate students ever learn what the labor demanders want.  What are universities thinking during the hiring process?

A paper by Jessica Holmes and David Colander examines this question.  They review their experience trying to hire a faculty member at Middlebury College in Vermont.  The complete article is available here.

  1. As you probably know, there’s lot’s of healthcare industry opportunities in Cleveland with University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, Case Western, etc… And anyway, you’ve got to be getting sick of San Diego weather by now. 😉

    Good luck on your search!
