Congratulations! You’re already on the right track if you’re visiting the Mercatus Center jobs page.
We recognize that applying for jobs is time consuming, and you took the time to seek out our organization and fill out an online application, so we’d like to honor your time by being as transparent as possible about what’s going on behind the scenes throughout our hiring process. Here are a few guidelines to help you successfully navigate the process.
Open opportunities are listed on our website, so please submit an application through our online application process. You don’t need “the perfect resume” to capture our attention, but do take the time to let us know why you’d like to work for the Mercatus Center, what our mission means to you, and why you are applying to this specific role. Hint: cutting and pasting a form cover letter won’t help us get to know you better.
We make an effort to update you on your status, regardless of the outcome. And we are constantly growing, which means new opportunities arise frequently. Please check back for new opportunities or send an application to the “future candidate” job posting to be on our short list when future roles open up.
We’re always looking for candidates that are passionate about our mission and exemplify our values. So even if you currently don't see a suitable opening, we encourage you to share your interest in future opportunities by applying to the future candidate job.
