A key aim of the meetings is to allow European recruiters to interview job market candidates nearer to home. Recruiters use the meetings in addition to or as well as the AEA meetings to meet with candidates. Students should note that attending the meetings does not guarantee them interviews, most institutions arrange these in advance.
Students can present their work in a presentation or poster session. Please note that Poster submissions are not accepted separately. You will have to submit a paper and these will go through the same referee process where they may be selected as poster presentations. Many recruiters are doing interviews not attending sessions, but students can perfect their (job market) presentation skills and get feedback from peers. This may be particularly helpful for students who are planning to go on the job market. Posters are set up in the refreshment area, so do tend to attract a lot of interest.
The meetings are open both to current job market candidates and to PhD students who are planning to go on the job market. There is no charge for attending, but students must be members of the Royal Economic Society. To attend you must be an RES Member and complete the registration form.
