Looking for your first job in economics?
Or, is your firm or agency hunting for a rising star in the field?
You are invited to attend the 2017 Economics Career Fair on Friday, November 3 in Washington, DC.
The National Association for Business Economics (NABE) joins Boston College, Boston University, Brandeis University, Columbia University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University and New York University in co-hosting the 2017 Economics Career Fair.
The event will bring together scores of highly-qualified candidates and dozens of recruiters from business, government, and consulting with hiring needs in the field of economics and analytics. The fair will be held at the National Association of Home Builders Conference Center in downtown Washington, DC. (see below for a list of past employers)
The 2017 Economics Career Fair is designed to give job candidates access to a large number of employers from both the government and private sector over the course of the half-day event. Registration is available to current M.A. students in economics or recent M.A. graduates in economics of consortium schools (will be verified by the schools) and NABE Student Members.
If you are not currently a NABE Student Member, you can find information on joining at the Student rate** here.
NABE Student Members can attend the event for $25.
**Must be a full-time student and can only be working part-time.
NOTE: Candidates who wish to have their resumes included in the "resume book," which will be sent to employers for the purpose of scheduling interviews, must register and submit their resume by Friday, October 13. If you are a student or recent graduate of a consortium school: please submit your resume to your student adviser or program staff.
The Economics Career Fair is designed to allow your recruiter to interact with hundreds of highly-qualified candidates so that they can make the most of the half-day event. The exhibit hall layout offers an ideal setting for meeting and interviewing candidates. In addition, two weeks prior to the fair, all employers will receive a resume book and are encouraged to contact candidates to schedule 15-minute interviews in Recruiter's Row, a section of the Career Fair reserved for employers to meet with candidates in a more private and quiet setting.
