Dear all, as you might know,

I have recently taken over from Lutz Weinke as placement director. I would therefore like to invite everyone who is considering to go on the academic job market either this year or next year (hence those who just finished their third year or their fourth year and beyond) to a meeting next Tuesday, June 28, from 18:00 (sharp) to about 20:00 in room ?????? at the Economics Department of Humboldt-University, Spandauer Str. 1 (note: no football game that day).

The main topics are how to prepare for the market if you go this year, how to start preparing if you want to go next year, how to make up your mind whether you want to go on the academic market, is there life outside academia, should you go this year or next year, how to mentally cope with all this, how we will interact over the next months and anything you might want to bring up. Even if you are only remotely considering to go on the market, you should attend the meeting as this might help you making up your mind and moreover, to prepare early if you end up best regards, see you next Tuesday
