Job Prospect for PhD in non-conventional area [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2008, 18:13
Hello
Can pursuing a Phd in non-commom area hurt the chances of getting a teaching position at school? I checked out higher edu job site....and....almost all positions are like in the field of accounting, finance, managment......ect...
I am interested in real estate. I am looking into Wharton's PhD program in Applied Economics...But I am very worried that...I might be able to find a teaching job...afterwards

Will there be less opporunties of teaching and research positions for people who get a PhD in non-conventional area?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I don't have experience since I do not have a PhD, ABD, or anything related. However, with that being said, I do not think that applied economics will give you problems when it comes to finding a career. I have known professors with PhDs in Applied Economics (Clemson is the school I am thinking of at the moment) and they found a job right after graduation. If there is demand for an Economist position, usually the employer will say something such as, "Education required: PhD, ABD, or something simular in an Economics or related program." Which this obviously includes Applied Economics. Something else I have noticed is that most universities will list different specialties or focuses in the Field of Economics. Thus, if you have researched and studied these areas, you will make a good candidate for that position. I hope this has helped.
