Registration for the 2019-20 market cycle is open.
Candidate account requests have been reviewed. If you signed up but do not have a confirmation e-mail, drop me a note at
The Candidate page will be live on July 12.

Here’s the quick version of how things work.

  • 1. Create a candidate account. University e-mails are preferred. Gmail (or similar) is fine as long as it matches the e-mail on your CV (and ideally on your web page).
  • 2. Wait for the account approval e-mail to come through (it's a manual review process, so it may take 24h during the week, 48h over the weekends).
  • 3. Log in to your account on Marketing Phd Jobs, add a photo, and declare your candidacy. You will have to click a button in your profile to appear on the candidate listing.

Here’s the longer version:

  • Step 1: Register. This involves filling out some info and uploading a CV. You'll get an e-mail that your account is waiting for approval.

    Step 2: Approval. We double check to make sure you're a real person. Once that's done, you'll get an "account approved" e-mail in your inbox. The approval e-mail will also include a link to participate in a pre-market candidate survey.

    Step 3: Log in. Hop into your profile on Marketing Phd Jobs and review your CV, add a photo, website link, and contact details.

    Click the "add me" button in your profile if you would like to appear on the Candidates page (which will launch July 1).

    Being listed on the Candidates page is optional. And of course, we encourage candidates to choose create public profiles. A listing on MPJ serves multiple functions. For one, it makes it easy for search committees to peruse profiles (some of them may even reach out to invite you to interview). Additionally -- and perhaps more importantly -- we see the Candidates page as an opportunity for scholars to network and to identify potential collaborators. As a job market candidate you have a unique opportunity to connect with other academics and to tell the field what you're up to and why it's important (with the heavy lifting being done by a website you put together -- MPJ profiles are limited by design). A public list of emerging scholars provides a valuable supplement to the job market mechanisms already in place. It allows you to promote your work both within the field and among your cohort. Our hope is that being listed on the Candidates page leads to new and fruitful avenues of research for you.
