Intermediate Micro and Macro Economics Understanding the Principles of Economics

Author Name: Dr. Samwel Nyagucha Oresi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Business, Investing & Management | Other Details

Jobs for economics majors are not just limited to those with "economist" in the title. Economics graduates can cast a much wider net in their job search. After all, those who complete economics programs can find work in a huge variety of industries, from banking and insurance to real estate and public service—and almost none of those jobs specifically ask for economists.
Jobs for economics majors right out of college run the gamut from banking and finance to research and sales. Some of the best entry-level jobs for economics majors in this section come with high salaries and solid employment outlooks
Some might say the best jobs for economics majors are those that take full advantage of their skill set. Economics majors are known for their analytical and critical-thinking skills. They're adept at manipulating data, recognizing linkages between trends, producers, and consumers, and understanding how daily transactions contribute to overall economic trends. Such skills are applicable to a wide range of jobs.
The type of job you find will depend somewhat on the kind of degree you get. Most entry-level jobs in economics require at least a bachelor's degree, but you can choose to get either a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). A B.S. in economics focuses heavily on math and statistics, and it will prepare you for jobs that require advanced data analysis or modelling. A B.A. also has a math component, but it looks more at the behavioural aspect of economics and thus tends to incorporate more psychology or sociology in the mix.
And while a bachelor's degree can open a lot of doors, advancing to more senior positions might require a master's degree or even higher credentials. This book will help one fit into the jobs described.
