I am interested in pursuing economics at the college level. However I am not entirely sure if I will be able to get a job after completing my studies. Maybe you could help me identify the kind of careers I will go into with an economics degree.


The Career Doctor responds:
There are quite a few occupations you could choose to venture into with an economics degree. Here are just a few: economist market analyst claim adjuster systems analyst inventory control specialist demographer geographer and many others.
