Signaling for Interviews in the Economics Job Market
The AEA coordinates a mechanism through which applicants can signal their interest in receiving an interview at the January meetings. From November 14, until November 29, shortly after the December JOE comes out, each applicant on the economics job market can register and designate no more than two departments (or other employers) to whom to send a signal of particular interest. On December 3, the AEA will transmit these signals to the departments a candidate has chosen. (Signals will not be made public.) Employers do not need to do anything to register to receive signals; signals will be sent automatically to the email address provided at the time the JOE listing was submitted.
