Economics job market roundtable and Q&A session
The AYEW economics job market roundtable and Q&A session, held on 8 December 2020, was an opportunity to get an inside view of the academic job market, specifically the economics job market, with representation from both sides of the hiring process.
Professor Sascha Becker (Monash and Warwick University) gave his insights from years of being a member of hiring committees. On the other side of the table, Dr Ludovica Gazze (Warwick) and Dr Weijia Li (Monash), who recently experienced the job market themselves, provided their tips and tricks for those undergoing preparation for this exciting process.
The roundtable discussion was followed by a 30-minute Q&A session where attendees were able to direct their questions to the panelists.
