This paper is an updated guide for newly minted PhDs entering the academic finance job market for the first time. We describe the institutional details of how this labor market works and what rookies need to know to improve their chances of getting the right job. We give advice for application materials, conferences, interviews, and fly-outs. We discuss job offers and what to do if a job seeker does not get one. Our advice complements strategy discussions between students and their advisors and empowers students to ask better questions of their advisors.
