Job Market Candidates 2019

At the annual conferences, EALE will facilitate in job market sessions that offer job market candidates whose research is in the field of Labour Economics, a platform for presenting their job market paper. This presentation also enables candidates to prepare for the US Job Market. During the conference we also organize a meeting moment where job market candidates and conference participants can meet and greet in an informal way.
