Here is some advice from employers to help students boost their chances of employment after graduating.
“Don’t be narrow in thinking or reading. Economics, sociology, behavioural science, history, mathematics, philosophy, physics, biology all offer important thinking to economists.”
“Come and do work experience in government as an excellent way of finding out what we do and what a career with us would look like.”
“Be more commercially aware. Being able to think about current affairs from an economic point of view and to communicate the thoughts logically.”
“Make sure to focus as much on communications as you do on underlying quality of the work — the latter will go unnoticed if the communications are not effective.”
