Career Resources

The Economics Graduate Program helps graduating master’s degree and doctoral students launch their careers by providing a Job Candidates website for potential employers. Employers may review the curriculum vitae of each candidate and either contact the candidate directly or contact the Economics Graduate Programs Office. Those interested in hiring our graduates may also forward position openings directly to the Program Director.
