Job Market Interviews will occur online for 2024. 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 2023-24 economics job cycle. Visit https://www.aeaweb.org/joe/communications for details and other updates.

2023-24 Minority Job Market Candidates. The Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession (CSMGEP) maintains a web page listing of 2023-24 minority job market candidates as a resource for employers. If you identify as American Indian, Alaskan Native, Black (not of Hispanic origin), Hispanic (including persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Central or South American origin), or Pacific Islander and would like to be added to this list, please email Dr. Gary A. Hoover at ghoover@tulane.edu.

Congratulations to AEJ: Economic Policy Editor C. Kirabo Jackson on his appointment as a member of the Council of Economic Advisers in Washington, DC.  The AEA wishes Professor Jackson success in this new role.  In his absence, Lucas Davis of the University of California, Berkeley, will serve as editor of AEJ: Economic Policy until Professor Jackson returns.  The AEA thanks Professor Davis for stepping up to fulfill this critical role for the journal.

The Annual AEA Officer Elections are still open for voting. If you have not voted and wish to participate, watch your postal mail for a paper ballot or your email for an electronic ballot, and return it before September 30, 2023.

AEA Mentoring Program. In the mid-1990s, the CSMGEP created a Mentoring Program for students accepted or enrolled in a Ph.D. program in economics. Since then, the program has expanded to include new doctorates as well. Students are matched with mentors who see the students through the critical junctures of their graduate programs (including the transition from course work to research) or the early stages of their post-graduate careers. The Mentoring Program also hosts an annual Summer Mentoring Pipeline Conference to which all participants and their mentors are invited. The conference, which is held each year at the AEA Summer Training Program, facilitates contacts among minority students in different schools and at different stages in the pipeline. For more information and to apply to be a mentor or mentee, visit https://www.aeaweb.org/about-aea/committees/csmgep/mentoring.

The AEA's Committee on the Status of LGBTQ+ Individuals in the Economics Profession (CSQIEP) invites you to its weekly virtual seminar on the economics of LGBTQ+ populations.

Information on how to sign up for the virtual series and a full schedule can be found on the website at https://www.aeaweb.org/about-aea/committees/aealgbtq/virtual-seminars.
