Abstract

This paper provides information about the economics PhD job market by providing a case study of one particular buyer in the 2005 job market for economists. Specifically, it provides information on the nuances of the market such as what is going on in buyers' minds when they select who to interview, and when they ask interview questions. It also distills some advice to job seekers from that case study.
