What are some of the job requirements, to become a policy analyst? Do I need to prepare speeches, or briefing notes? I'm thinking of majoring in Public Administration and Governance, in University next year. I don't have strong English writing skills, or math skills but I enjoy learning about the law, and excel in that area? Is the job hefty work? I read its a lot of desk work.
On average how much money will I make coing right out of grad school? If i wanted to work as a policy analyst for the government about how much will i start off as?Does the government hire fresh graduates as GS 13's?
i'm talking about a MPP not a MPA
I'm a 26 year old student in Canada, graduating this spring. I am wondering what you perceive as a fitting job for a political science student. What kind of jobs would be available for someone with that kind of educational background? I'm thinking the public service, or a government job of some sort, but does anyone have any concrete suggestions? I'm pretty sure I would need at least a Master's level degree to apply as a policy analyst, so what are some potential options? I live in Ontario, Canada. Thanks for your help in advance
After getting my masters in economics and getting the job I strove for as a policy analyst in a law office I realize that I hate economics.
After two months I have come to realize how little precision there is in anything legal or policy based. People just don't want to reach agreements and government agencies purposely try to confuse the public with convoluted wording. Moreover government agencies seem to just spend all their time justifying their own existence.
I would really like to get my PhD in physics or math, and I am curious if anybody here has ever got a degree in something very different from a previous degree.

My boyfriend is pursuing a 3-year BA with a combined major in economics and rhetoric. He would like to be either a policy analyst (hopefully running his own think tank one day) or a financial journalist, and he does not want to be in school beyond next year. He is hopeful that his experience as an income tax preparer and accounting clerk will make up for not having a graduate degree. I have studied journalism and could help him with that part if necessary. Is this realistic?
I'm going onto University soon (hopefully!) I have a passion for politics and was wondering what Jobs can one get if they have a political science degree? List of potential institutions and potential salary would be fantastic.
As always I will give 10 points to the best answer.
Thanks in advance :)
I am currently in college and don't know what I want to do in life. My current major is nursing but I am a nursing assistant and I know I do not want to become a nurse, despite the good job prospects. It is just not my thing. However, what are the prospects for someone with the above degrees? And what kind of jobs could I work with degrees in those fields?
Ok, but what about international studies?
I got my degree from a good school and am applying for PhD programs in Political Theory. I just need a good job until I start school where I could possibly do some networking as well. I'm getting pretty tired of my job at the mall and my previous work temping. I wish someone would have told me you can't do crap with a bachelor's in liberal arts, dammit!
I would like to join the Air Force and later find a job in the financial industry. What type of jobs can I expect to find with a commerce degree?
I have a Master's in Journalism. For the last eight years though, I've worked as a news artist for a large media organization and utilized my artistic and journalism skills to create informational graphics. But I've always had a love for military affairs and would like to know how to make a transition to become a think tank policy analyst.
I will be going to college soon and i don't know what i want to do. I want a great paying job for at least a bachelors or masters degree. Can any one please help me?

I'm in arts and economics looks like the best major to get job opportunities. But I don't really like math. So is there jobs for economics degrees that aren't completely math related?
I'm planning to major in criminal justice and probably minor in forensic science/investigation. Are there any career positions that I could work with criminal justice degree without having to carry a gun? I also dont want to work as a lawyer or legal field related
I also want to know is it possible to get a job as a crime analyst, criminologist, or anything similar with criminal justice degree?
What kind of jobs are there for someone who gets a degree in this? Seems like a waste of education and money if there are no viable careers.
I've been thinking about joining a federal agency for some time now, whether it be DEA, FBI, CIA, or whatnot. As a college junior majoring in history, I was just wondering whether I'd be qualified for such a position, and what type of work it would entail. Is it necessarily of the same high-risk profession as seen in "NCIS" or "24" with all the office drama and intrigue, even if I'm not deployed on the field? And would having a career in the public sector be beneficial if I plan to go into public policy doing more analytical work?
I don't really know what type of degree program I want to go into, but this is one of the ones I've been juggling around in my mind. Also, any information about the options between Bachelor's degree and Master's degree, salary, job outlook etc. would be welcome too.
