ELEVATOR PITCH WORKSHOPS – AIMED AT PhD STUDENTS ON THE ECONOMICS JOB MARKET  

The Canadian Women Economics Committee (CWEC) and Canadian Diversity in Economics Committee (CDEC) are hosting two sessions for current job market candidates to practice—and get feedback on—their three to five-minute "pitch".  If you are a PhD student at a Canadian institution and/or a member of the Canadian Economics Association, and are on the job market this year, we invite you to join us.  

 

These pitches are often an important part of your first-round interview. We will set you up into groups with other job market candidates and volunteers who have experience in the job market process.  

 

The sessions will be on Thursday November 16 and Wednesday November 29. They begin at 8PM Eastern and will require approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of your time. Spaces are limited and you will be assigned to only one of the dates.
