The 3rd European Job Market 2020 - to be held between Monday, December 14 and Friday, December 18 - will be its 1st virtual one

Whilst we were all very excited to be hosted by our colleagues at Nottingham University, the global challenges of COVID-19 and the continued uncertainty of travel have forced us to reconsider. We are not contemplating a permanent switch in format for future meetings. However, we are happy that the recent experience we have all gained in virtual meetings has allowed the European Job Market 2020 to go virtual, and continue our role as coordinators of a job market for economists in Europe.

There are a number of practical issues that we need to discuss over the coming weeks, but we are certain that full information will be released during the week of September 21. Our programme of workshops (see below) will remain unchanged, and we are exploring a number of other sessions for the benefit of the EJM candidates.

If you wish to confirm now your intention to recruit, please visit the page for recruiters.
