It’s almost that time again. The ASSAs are fast upon us and while I haven’t been quite as attuned to the job market this year, I’m surely going to attend the meetings when they are in a place I have
free paid for place to stay (my apartment, that is). With that, I’d also like to call your attention to the third annual mentoring breakfasts for women put on by CSWEP. Details below. I’ll hopefully be there on Monday. Hope to see some of you there!
Also worth noting. There’s a mid-career peer mentoring breakfast on Sunday this year, too.

CSWEP is pleased to host the third annual mentoring breakfasts for junior economists from 8-10AM on Saturday, January 3rd & Monday, January 5th in the Sheraton Boston, Fairfax A&B. At these informal meet and greet events, senior economists (predominately senior women) will be on hand to provide mentoring and networking opportunities.
Junior economists are invited to drop in with questions on topics such as publishing, teaching, grant writing, networking, job search, career paths, and the tenure process. For the 2015 breakfasts we will encourage rotation of mentees so that they may have the opportunity to connect with a greater number of mentors.
Mentors are currently committed from Agnes Scott, Brown, BU, Colgate, Columbia, Duke, Federal Reserve Bank of New York, George Mason, Georgetown, Illinois, Indiana, MacArthur Foundation, Maryland, Missouri-St. Louis, Occidental, Princeton, Providence College, UCBerkeley, UCLA, UNC- Chapel Hill, University of Texas, UPenn, USM, and Virginia.
Junior economists who have completed their PhD in the past 6 years or graduate students who are on the job market are particularly encouraged to attend. The event is open to both males and females.
