EJME 2022/23: Important Information for Candidates and Recruiters




As announced in early July, the Council of the EEA and the EJME Committee (with RES and SEA) have decided that the 2022 – 2023 job market will be held virtually. The statement may be found here.

We would now like to provide more details about the 2022-2023 recruitment timeline, and the resources available through the EJME.


  • Virtual First Round Interview Dates: Monday, 12 December – Wednesday, 14 December 2022 (this allows candidates to participate without conflict in the Econometric Society Winter Meeting, which is in Berlin from 16 December – 18 December)
  • In Person (and/or Virtual) Fly outs: January – March 2023
  • Offers: With deadlines no earlier than February 1, 2023. There is increased awareness and concern about “exploding offers” (offers with very short deadlines or deadlines that pre-date the end of scheduled fly outs) imposing enormous stress on already stressed candidates. Recruiters are urged to keep these potential costs in mind when making offers, and to eliminate the use of such offers if possible.

Candidates and recruiters can also take advantage of the resources available through EJME:

Candidate registration on the EJME Candidate Directory

Candidates can now register for the EJME Candidate Directory here. Candidate registration allows the candidate to list a profile in the directory through which recruiters can search (both during the regular season and post season clearing market).

Candidate workshops

EJME will offer a series of workshops on a (at least) monthly basis for students on the job market. These workshops will be geared to answering any questions candidates have about different aspects of the market. All information on these events will be advertised here and through Twitter (@EEANews).

Recruiter registration

Recruiters can register their support for the EJME immediately. There is no fee for registration and all recruiters showing their support for the EJME will be listed on a specific section on the EJME Candidate Directory. To create a profile, please fill out the registration form here.
