About JOE Network

(Job Openings for Economists)

Your Career ... Our Mission

Job Openings for Economists (JOE), the leading employment publication for economists from around the world, was established in 1974.  JOE was expanded in 2014 into the JOE Network to automate the repetitive activities of participants in the economics job market cycle including Employers, Candidates, and Faculty Letter Writers.

Each year, over 1,500+ PhDs secure employment at colleges, universities, corporations and government agencies with the help of the JOE Network. Nearly one-third of the jobs listed in JOE are for positions outside of North America.

Along with JOE Network, the AEA provides a structure for Annual Meeting interviews--which serve as the profession's job market fair -- and services known as "Signaling" and the "Job Market Scramble" to facilitate job searches.


JOE is a service of the American Economic Association.
