“There is a changing tide in our profession,” said job placement committee member and AFRE assistant professor Melissa McKendree.”More energy is being devoted to match potential employees with employers and to provide professional development. This year AAEA will host an inaugural job fair on Sunday, August 4 — in addition to the employment center running throughout the conference. These are great opportunities that show AAEA’s commitment to our early career professionals.”

“The placement committee is very excited about our latest batch of job candidates,” said Soren Anderson, AFRE associate professor and committee member. “This is our first cohort of students to launch their job searches around the August AAEA meetings since our committee was formed last fall. We had an earlier cohort launch for the January ASSA meetings and land exciting new jobs this past spring. So we have high hopes for this latest batch.”
