How to find a job at ASSA

There has been a shift in the most common way for agricultural economists to find a new job, centered around the ASSA Annual Meeting. To help young professionals navigate this confusing environment, AAEA spoke to three professionals with different perspectives on the process:

  • the university perspective
  • the public agency perspective
  • the perspective of a student and recent hire who has successfully interviewed at ASSA.
