Besides becoming an economist. What job does someone with a master's in economics get?

I am about to get my bachelor's in economics. I want to go to grad school and get my masters in applied economics, but i can't really find any sites that show the jobs you can get with a master's in economics.

A masters in economics is a worthless degree, don't bother getting one unless you want to continue on to a PhD. This comes from someone with a masters currently working on a PhD in economics. Consider a masters in public policy or finance since they are much more useful.

I have a master in economics and to me it has always been very useful. It gives you tools that you use in many areas, because you get good analytical skills and a critical spirit. People with good math skills look at problems in a different way. And most management majors focus more on practical courses than on math... More
