AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event

Chicago, IL

The Industry’s Largest Hiring Event

The AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event offers the opportunity for scholars to interview and connect in person with prospective schools who are hiring.  This event is attended annually by more than 100 schools and 200 candidates.  The hiring event takes place in conjunction with the AMA Summer Academic Conference.

How it Works

The AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event is a place where candidates and schools meet to interview in-person over a 4-day period. Most candidates (and employers) have a full schedule of interviews while at the event. Your conference badge must be worn at all times.

For Job Candidates

Doctoral students get full access to the AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event with registration for the AMA Summer Academic Conference. During the conference checkout process, make sure to select that you’d like to interview on-site. Candidates will not be able to interview without conference registration even if an employer directly invites you.

You will receive:

  • Inclusion in the guide of CVs sent to all employers 
  • Access to interview locations
  • Wi-Fi and daily refreshments provided in the lounge
  • Entry to sessions and events at the 2019 AMA Summer Academic Conference
