Richard H. Thaler's first job: One endnote that might offer some aspiration by Richard H. Thaler, 2017 Nobel Prizer winner in economics. 
“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.”
