This is a guide for newly minted Ph.D.'s entering the academic finance job market for the first time. The institutional knowledge of how the job market works is lost when students graduate, and advisors are often too busy or too removed from the process to give the finely detailed advice that students need. The knowledge we provide should complement strategy discussions between students and their advisors. We give a detailed timeline for job seekers plus a summary of the most important deadlines. We give advice for academic conferences, conference interviews, and fly-outs. We discuss job offers and what to do if a job seeker does not get one. We also give cautionary job market horror stories and a list of internet job search resources.
