How to Be a Successful Economist


0 out of 5


Exploring the wealth of career opportunities open to those with an interest in economics, Pryce, Ross, Birdi, and Harwood reflect on how students can become successful economists. An ideal complement to skills and employability modules on economics courses, or as pre-course reading, the authors explain the attributes that employers want and guide students to assemble the essential toolkit that all good economists need.

The content uniquely brings together chapters which demystify the roles and industries that typically recruit economists; explore the importance of strong communication, quantitative, and broader soft skills and how to develop these; and coaches readers through the application and interview process for graduate positions. Readers will benefit from candid reflections on the advantages and drawbacks of particular career paths as well as the insights contributed by the authors, recent graduates,
and experienced industry professionals.

Professionals with experience working in industries such as financial services, government and policy, journalism, and consultancy participated in conversations with the authors about their careers. The valuable insights and advice they shared are included throughout the book and full video interviews can be found either in the e-book version of this title, or with the accompanying online resources.
