About Me


My Target Scores

  1. Hi guys, Quick question: do you guys think there is a huge marginal difference between RAing for one year after college instead of 2? I saw that most RA job descriptions mention that they prefer if the applicant is available to RA for 2 years, but it seems like too much time. Will it impact my grad school admissions a lot if I decide that I only want to RA for a year? (think about top 5 admissions) By RAing for one year, I mean starting during the summer, applying during the winter, and leaving the job when the grad program starts the other year.
  2. I am lucky to have an offer from a T12 school in this godforsaken season with a very solid fit. The location is also very good though funding is not excellent. But I have been rejected/implicitly rejected from most of the T10s. But I am wondering, assuming I have rejections from the few T10s yet to respond, whether it is beneficial for my long-run outcomes to delay for one more year and try again next year. I am currently an RA at a T3 for a fully tenured faculty member who is very respected in my subfield. I was planning to just do a one year RA'ship, but given this rough season I am considering taking more time to do research and extending my stay. While nothing is guaranteed obviously, surely my odds ought to go up (right?), because both I will have more research experience and also class sizes are projected to go back to normal post-covid (or at least be much better than right now). I am just weighing the tradeoffs and I was hoping to hear some of your opinions. On the one hand, I am a little tired of RA work as, while I am picking up very useful empirical skills, I am not able to do too much creative work. I have a few set of ideas from my RA work, and I want to enroll in a PhD program sooner to take grad classes in my subfield and adjacent subfields, so I can begin working on my projects and writing papers. I also do not want to spend another >$1.3k on applications, plus my mental health has taken a massive hit during the past two months. Yet on the other hand, there is much evidence that, even accounting for selection, that being in a T5 is very advantageous (see e.g. Jim Heckman and Sidharth Moktan's paper on the Tyranny of the Top Five). wondering if people had any thoughts to take into consideration. On average are advisors at T7's not available/there is a lot of competition amongst students for good advisors than at T15's? On the other hand, what are the peer networks like at T15's, are they as motivated and enterprising as those at T7's (both for self-motivation purposes and for potential coauthors)? Is being a star at a T15/T20 better than being middle-of-the-road at T7 (not saying I'll be a star but I'm just curious)? Should I take into consideration the fact that the job market in five-six years will probably be a bit easier due to smaller cohorts? Have I overestimated the likelihood of next admission season being easier (maybe because top students are thinking of deferring/delaying)? (please don't say past your first job nobody cares about your degree. Sure, conditional on that first job your degree won't matter, but it's precisely getting that first job that is very difficult and where I'm sure pedigree matters, see Heckman and Moktan 2020 as above.)
  3. Hello everyone, I have an admission to one of the top Ph.D. in Economics program in Europe. However, I have certain concerns regarding my decision. First of all, let me mention one thing. I have a keen interest in financial markets and I have a strong performance in my portfolio. This implies two things; on the one hand, my opportunity cost in doing a Ph.D. is high because I believe that I can be very successful in jobs in financial markets. On the other hand, I am not sure if I want the financial markets will be my essential job. It can also be my secondary income source. Secondly, as a person who loves comfort and quality, academic position in universities seems to be very attractive. You don't have a boss, you can choose the topics you want, you can choose the time you work, and so on. However, the four years in the Ph.D. actually scares me... Students seem too tired and drained. Many studies show mental health problems that graduate students face. There are conflicting claims about the job market, is there an oversupply or not? Finally, even though the routine tasks in the private sector are not very qualitative, sometimes the research in academia feels the same. Since, it turns into a race for publishment and, actually, the research topic will possibly be a very narrow question that has very low likely to change anybody's lives. Hence, sometimes it feels like it is an investment that thrives me and sometimes it feels like it is an investment that fails.. Would you want to share your ideas, questions, and thoughts? Thank you.
  4. Is the JM in anyway discriminatory against international students from India/China because of the green card issues? Also, how tough is it to get an EB1 visa for a new professor?
  5. Hello everyone, I am a prospective Ph.D. in Economics student at a well-known university in Europe. However, I have concerns about the future of the job market for Ph.D. in Economics graduates. I have read several comments that claim oversupply in the market, especially compared to Ph.D. in Finance or Business This leads me to think about what will happen in the coming four years and questioning myself about the investment decision I am making. Therefore, could you please evaluate the current(and future) of the Ph.D. in Economics job market? Is there any source that provides some kind of demand and supply data? Thank you.
  6. ARGUMENT: The following appeared in the editorial section of a local newspaper: Nearly 70% of employers blamed inadequate training for the shortfall in skilled workers, yet 70% of education-providers believe they suitably prepare graduates for the jobs market. Similarly, employers complain that less than half of the young whom they hire have adequate problem-solving skills, yet nearly two-thirds of the young believe that they do have such skills. Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument, what changes in the argument would make it more logically sound, and what, if anything, would help you better evaluate its conclusion. MY ESSAY: The argument provides two instances when two different parties claim and support contradictory statements. The author also provides figures which, at first glance, make the argument plausible. However, on close inspection, it is seen that their are many questions and alternatives not addressed. While the education-providers believe they suitably prepare graduates for the jobs, one possibility of why the employers still find their training inadequate is because of the pace of the job market. The markets progress and expand at a high pace and new jobs might be coming up requiring a whole new set of skills. It is possible that the education-providers are not yet aware of these advancements. If the author specifies that the employers are up to date with this information, then his argument would be strengthened. Another question that arises is that are the employers giving the newly hired youngsters adequate time to settle in before concluding that they lack problem-solving skills? As a fresher, it takes time to get used to the job and sometimes even guidance is necessary. It would be futile for the employers to expect a hundred percent performance from them on their first day. In continuation of the point above, an alternative explanation to the apparent contradictory figures and claims could be that the employers are not hiring workers with the relevant skills for the job role. For example, a well trained software engineer might not necessarily know how to work in the job role of a bank clerk. She would need some kind of training. Unless this unstated assumption is addressed, the argument falls apart. Last, even though two-thirds of the young believe that they do have problem-solving skills, their performance depends on their determination and sincerity to their current job role. Their ability of practically applying what they have been taught might also affect their performance. Hence, unless a specific mention of the source of the numbers mentioned in the argument, and a clarification of the points stated above are given, it can be concluded that the author fails to make a cogent and reasonable case. PS: I will be very grateful to whosoever takes out the time to review my essay. I have heard a lot about this forum, hoping it will help me out! Cheers!

  9. Hello. I hope everyone is starting to get good news from PhD programs. I myself have applied to both sociology and management/OB PhD programs. There is a lot of information online on the overall health of the sociology job market, e.g., how many jobs and how many PhD graduates per year, what typical placement is for a productive student at a top program. However, there is very little information I can find on the Business School Job Market. I know I can see some placements on individual university websites. But is there any good information on the business school job market overall? Information that will help me compare sociology and business in terms of job market quality? Information that will give me a sense of "how likely I am to get an R1 job", for example?
  10. Hi friends, I've been accepted to a great engineering PhD program (that does social science research) with faculty I'm very excited about. I've spoken some with them about the job market I could go into, and they're excited about me doing management-style work and publishing in management journals. However, I'm worried that I will be handicapped in the job market for Management programs by virtue of just not graduating from a business school. What do you think?
  11. Is it possible to enter finance job market from Econ Phd?
  12. Hi I am a Foreign Pharmacy graduate, going through US licensing process.

What position am I allowed to work in a pharmacy now? working permit is not a problem as I am citizen....just want to know which positions can i apply to when seeking a job in local pharmacies ?? Any advice is welcomed and thanks in advance
  13. Hello! I sincerely request for advice from Canadians and others who are familiar with Canadian Econ programs, please. I will be truly very grateful for any & all insights into the issue below. Thank you so much in advance! I am international student who will be pursuing the MA on a study permit. I have a 4-year undergraduate honours in Economics from India, & a final year UG thesis. I got into UBC, UofT, SFU, Ottawa, McMaster, Waterloo MA Co-op, Dalhousie, UAlberta, etc. After a lot of consideration, I have decided that I'll go either to SFU or to Waterloo. This is due to the international student tuition differential at most places, which makes affording grad studies very difficult for me at UBC & UofT. My goal is to work after the MA, and I am quite sure about not going the PhD route. The MA at SFU has an optional co-op, while the Waterloo program itself is the MA co-op track. But from what I have seen, international students' co-op placements are not exactly guaranteed at Waterloo, even if one is enrolled in the co-op program. I mean, I'm ready to work for searching jobs in the co-op, but there seem to be certain things out of my control in the case of Waterloo (like the Ontario government's cutback / restrictions on hiring students who are not Canadian citizens / PR). I guess in Waterloo, it can happen that I don't get into co-op due to these other factors. And if so, the program will end in 8 months, and I don't want to do such a short program. This is just my understanding, please correct me if I'm mistaken regarding this. Is a co-op position a definite part of the degree for those enrolled in the co-op option (assuming we perform well in the coursework) ? How about co-op positions for internationals ? Is job success difficult for internationals (even if they perform well in the program)? Essentially, how will my visa status affect me in getting a job in Ontario? And neither is co-op job success a sure feature at SFU. In fact, I have read that the job market in the west coast is brutal, and it's better to remain in the east. Is finding a job in the west really that difficult ? But again, Waterloo has the international tuition, which would make it really very tight for me there (though they have given me a TA-ship). So is taking up the financial burden worth going to Waterloo? Or should I go to SFU instead (lesser financial strain) and will the SFU degree help in finding work? I am not complaining, and in fact, am greatly thankful for the opportunity. It's just that given that I have couple of options, I would want to make an informed decision about how my life would change from now on. Given all this, please advise me regarding work placements after the SFU degree, and the possibility of taking up a co-op position at SFU (they have co-op for MA econ). Do students get placed in co-op every year? What about general work placements after the SFU MA? I would be really very thankful for advice, please.
  14. Hello URCH community! Earlier I had come across a google doc that provided job market outcomes (interviews, acceptances, etc.) for candidates in the bschool job market. Unfortunately, I have lost the link. Can someone please provide this link?
  15. Hello After completing the Graduation, the Science aspirants usually face the dilemma of which career option will fit them best? Master of Science in IIT JAM Physics is designed for those ingenious students who want to engage in p profound scientific research & theoretical knowledge in a dedicated area. It’s a general conception that careers after MSc are only limited to researching and Ph.D. only which is completely false. There are many companies like Goldman Sachs Walmart Dunia Finance Fuzzy Logics Amazon etc. which have offered 20+LPAto the MSc students. You can also go with government job: - Research & Scientist Officer Job Assistant Professor Railway Officer etc. Thank You!!

  18. Some people believe that college students should consider only their own talents and interests when choosing a field of study. Others believe that college students should base their choice of a field of study on the availability of jobs in that field. As the saying goes “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life”. Students should definitely choose a field they are interested in. If a student chooses a field that interests him and knows that field will complement his talent, he should without any doubt pursue it. It is not very often that a student chooses a field of study solely because of the availability of jobs in that field and performs exceptionally well, even though he was least interested in that field of study. It is very difficult to give your best when you choose a field that doesn’t interest you. And even though you choose a field keeping your interests aside, there is no guarantee that you will end up getting a job. As the competition in that field of study will be more and if you have not performed well in your college in that field, you may end up getting no jobs at all. Considering a student ends up getting a job in the field he was not very interested in, he may not get the joy working there and later ends up leaving the job for a job that brings him the peace of mind. One may question that in this day and age where money is so important in everyone’s life that we may end up compromising on our interests and go for the field that will, in the end, pay us more. So, the security that at the end of the course a student will have more opportunities to work and earn money can play a big role for many in deciding their field of study. One can pursue his interests like Painting, sketching, and football as his hobbies while working full time in an IT company or any other company for that matter, even though he was not interested in it at first. Sometimes, it a possibility that we are not interested in some field of study because we know very little about it in the beginning, but as we get to know more about it and go deeper and deeper into it we develop a liking towards it and end up doing well. Your field of study should only matter on what your interests are and how well that field complements your talent. Choosing a field that offers more job opportunities does not guarantee a job since you have to do exceptionally well in the field that you are least interested in to even get a shot at the job opportunity. As there is a risk involved in taking the field in which a student is not interested in, he should definitely go for something he is interested in and not compromise his talents.
  19. Which one should I go to guys (Aussie Chinese from Melbourne background)? I should have applied to USA but I didnt realise the preference for USA grads.... I don wanna live like a poor guy for 4 years and then be jobless or worse settle for a non phd job....:sorrow::sorrow::miserable::miserable:
  20. Hey guys, I think I will soon be getting an offer to do a PhD Public Policy (I plan to major in comparative political economy and write my dissertation on that) from a uni at home. I basically can continue to live at home, no need to rent and they are giving me a good stipend (almost equal to what a fresh graduate makes in a full time job). I can save a very decent amount of money, not too different from working a full time job. My worry is the tenure track job market later as I heard Public Policy PhDs find it harder to land jobs. But I will write my dissertation on Comparative Political Economy hoping to go on the Comparative Political Economy job market. I also have a Masters in Political Science (majored in Political Economy, covered all coursework for PhD in Political Science already). I got another offer to do a PhD in Business Strategy overseas. I heard the tenure track job prospects for Business Strategy is good (strong demand) but it still feels risky to me. The stipend is quite low, I wont save any money and I feel it is a little hard to live on it (minimal entertainment and I eat a lot). I am fretting a little about these major choices now. I quit my job 2.5 months ago to focus on PhD applications so I can get time off for interviews and research the programmes properly and I am kind of sitting around pondering about these stuff ~~~ I think 2.5 months without a job is getting to me, interviews are mostly over and I plan to find a temp job asap. Both unis are ranked QS top 50 in the world.
  21. * I have been out of school for a while and KNOW I need to improve. Constructive criticism only please! Thanks =) "People most respect the powerful not when they exercise their power, but when they refrain from exercising it." Isn’t being powerful when someone in power exercises their power? If not, what would distinguish them from anyone else? Those in power are more respected when they fully take on the role and exercise their power. Police officers are highly respected and valuable to many communities. They earn this respect by exercise their power to enforce the law and keep people safe. Government officials, from Mayors to Senators to the President are constantly exercising their power, making big decisions to better our country. They are respected for doing their job – exercising their power and making big decisions that will affect many. On the other hand, workers at a restaurant may have more respect for their manager when they roll up their sleeves and serve food to patrons along side them. Or when a nurse manager puts on scrubs and helps a struggling staff take care of a heavy workload of sick patients. Those in power need to exercise their power in order to do their job well. A job well done is the perfect recipe for success.
  22. Ok guys, I was in your position 7 years ago. This year one of my students is applying to PhD programs and I am super excited for him, so I am visiting this forum again to see how the market is moving and to offer you my two cents. I applied in a complicated period (2007-2009 crisis) and I was rejected by every top 20 that I applied to. I had a couple of top 30s and accepted the one with funding. If I were in that situation today, I would think it twice. Let me tell you that the job market is becoming more brutal every year, and if you are in a top 30 and you are not a star, you will struggle a lot. For instance, this year there is a top university with almost 40 job market candidates. At the end, pedigree matters a lot. I had a really innovative job market paper, but I was not the star in my cohort. The number of interviews and flyouts I had was just a third of any below average candidate in a top 15. I got a job in a top 50 program, but I was very very lucky (it involves many people rejecting that offer, I was like their fifth alternative). And this is, because my program is focused on the median placement; it pushes almost everyone at the same rate on the market, perhaps the star a little bit more. We don't have a wonderful placement but we are all at least placed. Most of the programs at top 30s are more concerned about the top placement and you will see many candidates struggling a lot to find a job. You will see this strategic behavior also in a couple of top 20s. As basic as it sounds and as alarmist as it can be, if you are thinking about which program to choose, choose the one that is ranked the highest.

  25. Hi everyone! I'm an aspiring Ph.D. applicant and this is my first time posting here. I wanted to ask you guys about your experiences approaching professors for an RA position. I've seen a lot of tips about how to ask for an RA job, but almost all of them are for science/engineering majors where professors regularly recruit students for their labs. I was just wondering what would be the best way to ask a business school professor whether he/she needs an RA. Any advice can help! Thank you guys so much!
