AEA CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM

The AEA will offer a set of three continuing education programs scheduled immediately following the ASSA Meetings. These will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans. The programs are designed to help mid-career economists with heavy teaching loads or considerable administrative responsibilities maintain the value of their human capital. They are tailored to faculty at liberal arts colleges and teaching-oriented state universities who usually have fewer research opportunities than colleagues at universities with Ph.D. programs in economics. The lecturers are leading scholars in their fields who are excellent expositors. The focus is on content to help improve both teaching and research. See AEA Continuing Education for details and updates.

JOB MARKET

Job Market Interviews have always been a central part of the ASSA Annual Meeting but will occur online once again for 2023. We hope that you will continue to take advantage of the JOE Network for your candidate profiles, job listings, and letter writing, as well as the application module that includes a tool for scheduling interviews. The AEA will continue to provide Signaling and the Job Market Scramble. The AEA Committee on the Job Market offers periodic updates on conditions in the job market, and has issued guidance and a timeline for the 2022-23 economics job cycle.
