What kind of jobs are available for Economics majors?
I am graduating in one year from an Ivy League university with a degree in Economics. My long-run plan is law school but I might work to pay off student debt before applying to LS. What jobs are there for Econ majors anyway? It seems most of the stuff we learn is broad and not exactly applicable in the workforce. (My work experience is part-time secretary at a law firm, part-time secretary at a software company, and also part-time telemarketing.) Basically I've worked these jobs while at university. I might plan on taking just one year off. I still have to take the LSAT for law school, but I hope to apply within one year of graduation.
