Applying for Jobs (Candidates)
There are a number of platforms where recruiters can list their postings, and where candidates can search them. One of the most consolidated of these, developed by academic economists for the job market for economists is EconJobMarket.org. EconJobMarket.org handles the search listings, the transmission of applications and letters of recommendation, and interview scheduling for the EJME. To access these postings, please sign up for free at econjobmarket.org
Please follow carefully the information and instructions for the job application on each job posting. Each institution will have its own distinct deadline for application and requests for information. Moreover, each institution will choose when to make their job announcement. The EEA, RES and SEA encourage institutions to post on EconJobMarket.org so do check this site regularly (and other sites where job postings are uploaded).
The EEA, RES and SEA are NOT involved in setting any job application deadline and do NOT offer information or advice on the job posting of any institution. Moreover, the EEA, RES and SEA have NO involvement in the scheduling of any interviews during the EJME. The role of the The EEA, RES and SEA is limited to the organization of the scientific workshops for candidates and the recommendation of how to coordinate the EJME so that it does not unravel for candidates.
Neither the EEA, nor the RES, nor the SEA, co-organisers of the European Job Market (EJME), are responsible for the content of the advertisements posted in EconJobMarket.org or on any other search listing.
Advertising Positions and Sharing Materials on EconJobMarket.org (Recruiters)
There are a number of platforms where recruiters can list their postings, and where candidates can search them. EJME recommends that recruiters and candidates use EconJobMarket.org. This is one of the most consolidated of these platforms, developed by academic economists for the job market for economists. EconJobMarket.org handles search listings, the transmission of applications and letters of recommendation, and interview scheduling. Details on how to use EconJobMarket.org are below:
- To establish a recruiter account, first register as a user at econjobmarket.org and then request the “recruiter” role. Recruiters new to the system can post their first job advertisement for free.
- Be sure to specify that you are interviewing at the EJME. Note that you can also specify whether you will be interviewing at the ASSA meetings. EconJobMarket.org is used for both meetings and you can make arrangements for the two meetings independently in the system.
- Recruiters are strongly encouraged to accept applications, or at least letters of recommendation, via the EconJobMarket system. When creating a job posting, there are options to collect all application materials, letters only, or all application materials through a different channel outside of EconJobMarket.org.
- The application form that is received through EconJobMarket.org is entirely customizable (including questions and documents to be submitted). There are also templates for standard job searches (junior faculty search, senior faculty search, etc.).
- Recruiters can easily search and view applications in the EconJobMarket.org system, as well as download spreadsheet files of the applicant data and complete application packets. You can also arrange to transfer application data to a separate review system, such as HiRE, Head Hunter, or your own internal personnel system.
- If you want to recruit at the EJME but do not want to advertise a position, EconJobMarket.org will provide a feature that allows you to see the profiles of candidates who will attend and choose to make basic information available.
- EconJobMarket.org also helps you schedule your interviews. The interview scheduler allows you to specify interview slots for various specialty fields and select the candidates that you want to interview, and then it automatically emails the selected candidates and lets them pick interview slots within your constraints.
- For all questions on econjobmarket.org (EJM), contact them directly here
