Do you like economics? You can turn your interest in economics into a career. There are a lot of options out there in many industries.

The government is one opportunity, and for good reason: government agencies working with taxes, international trade, and even agriculture work with economic principles. You can use your interest in economics in many federal and state government agencies.

You can also work in the private sector. The business world is a popular one, particularly working in finance or banking. You can also work as an economic consultant.

You need a bachelor’s degree for almost all positions involving economics. If you’re also interested in math or computer science, you can create even more opportunities.
