Econ Job Market Inc. (EJM) is a nonprofit organization (501c3 tax-exempt charity) that facilitates the flow of information in the economics job market by providing a secure central repository for the files of job-market candidates (including papers, reference letters, and other materials) accessed on line. EJM is run by a group of academic economists who volunteer their time and effort. For 2014-2015, EJM's new features include:
- Wider distribution of job postings through EJM's partners, including the Econometric Society, the Canadian Economics Association, and VoxEU.
- Automated interview scheduling. EJM's major new component, called AIMS (application and interview management system), allows recruiters and candidates to schedule their interview slots at all professional meetings.
- Email job-notification service for candidates through AIMS.
- New "back end" options for recruiters to automatically and securely transfer application materials to third-party application-processing systems such as Head Hunter, HiRE, and Njoyn.
