Economics Job Market Mentoring Events
The Canadian Economics Diversity Committee (CEDC) and the Canadian Women Economists Committee (CWEC) are hosting a number of mentoring events this fall, aimed at graduate students on the job market this year or in the coming years.
Our first meeting was on October 12, at 8PM Eastern. This was a casual Meet & Greet and information gathering session. We provided a short overview of the job market and where to find resources, introduce the mentoring committee and gather information about issues and questions that attendees would like to explore further.
Tips for applications and first-round interviews:
Based on the feedback from students on the market, we will hold an information session to provide tips for applications and first-round interviews on Wednesday November 2, 2022 (8PM Eastern, 5PM Pacific). We hope you will be able to join us.
Three-minute elevator speech:
We will also be hosting workshops on the "Three-minute elevator speech." Being able to succinctly and effortlessly describe your research in under three minutes will start of your interviews on the right path and give a top-notch first impression. We will have two sessions - November 30 and December 14 - to accommodate everyone. All students on the market from Canadian universities, or current CEA members on the market are welcome to sign up. You will be assigned to a small group that includes other students and experienced economists. More details to come.
Please forward this registration link to all PhD Students who may be on the market this year or next.
