PhD Placement Outcomes

PhD students who have or will soon graduate, are encouraged to take part in the Department's job market workshop series.

The first information meeting is typically held toward the end of spring semester to begin preparing candidates for the ASSA (Allied Social Sciences Associations) meeting. Workshops continue during fall semester to address such subjects as how to write a cover letter, answer interview questions, prepare a job market paper, etc.

In early January, students attend the ASSA meeting where employers from the academic, public and private sectors search for employees. This method is common for many graduating economists but some find employment outside the formal job market.

Talk to your committee chair and the placement advisor if you have questions.
