The Hiring of An Economist

Posted Nov 21 2008 5:13pm

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.
