Many people who earn an economics degree go on to work as an economist. Employment opportunities are available in private industry, government, academia, and business. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, federal, state, and local governments employ more than half of all economists in the United States. Other economists work for private industry, particularly in areas of scientific research and technical consulting. Experienced economists may choose to work as teachers, instructors, and professors.
Many economists specialize in a specific area of economics. They may work as industrial economists, organizational economists, monetary economists, financial economists, international economists, labor economists, or econometricians. Regardless of specialization, knowledge of general economics is a must.
In addition to working as an economist, economics degree holders can also work in closely related fields, including business, finance, or insurance. Common job titles include:
