First Round Job Market Interviews have always been a central part of the ASSA Annual Meeting but will occur online once again for 2022. 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 Ad Hoc Committee on the Job Market offers guidance and periodic updates on conditions in the job market.

2021-22 Minority Job Market Candidates. The Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession (CSMGEP) maintains a web page listing of 2021-22 minority job market candidates as a resource for employers.
