The Young Economist's Guide to Professional Etiquette
Hamermesh, Daniel S. 1992. "The Young Economist's Guide to Professional Etiquette." Journal of Economic Perspectives, 6(1): 169-179.
Nearly all advanced graduate students and new assistant professors demonstrate naivety in their nonsubstantive professional dealings. Graduate programs in economics offer courses that lead to written drafts of important research; they teach little about how to refine those drafts and, more generally, about the personal interactions that cut and polish intellectual diamonds in the rough. I provide here a short course aimed at removing that naivety and helping young economists to avoid faux pas that might reduce their success in the profession.
