Advice for aspiring academics

Put your works up on SSRN or BePress! Make it easy on us on the hiring committees. It's easy goodwill. (I grumble now when I have to get beyond some password wall to read work, because I'm spoiled, and if I have to debate with myself whether to request your work from you to read it, I probably won't, which is not the result you want.) This goes for accepted drafts or even your job talk paper, at least; I don't usually post unpublished drafts--but I'm not seeking a tenure-track position.

Contrary opinions welcome.

Nope, agree completely.
