John Cawley: Job Market Mentor-The Interdisciplinary Ph.D.

One endnote that might offer some aspiration by Richard H. Thaler, 2017 Nobel Prizer winner in economics. It does not stop one even the start is tough.
“Academic insiders might wonder how I landed a job in the Rochester business school after being a student in the economics department. Universities usually do not hire their own graduates. The answer is a long story, the short version of which is that I had been teaching at the business school while a graduate student, and when my first job fell through at the last minute, Bill Meckling, the school’s dean, offered me a one-year position as a stopgap measure, and I ended up sticking around for a few more years.”

Excerpt From: Richard H. Thaler. “Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics.”
