I wrote six letters for graduate students on the market this year - five in economics and one in sociology. So far, two of the six have jobs and two more have offers.
It is an exciting time. I really enjoy watching my students see the payoff to their years of hard work. They enjoy having their income quintuple.
One suggestion to graduate student readers: when you take a job, send an email to your committee members .... they'd like to know.
Who was my favorite student this term?
