Economics

Jobs, Internships, and Careers

For many, the Economics major provides a useful background for a business career, while for others the major is preparation for graduate study in law, economics or public policy. Economics is relevant for students interested in employment in politics and public policy analysis, the financial services sector (banking, insurance), as industry analysts (health care, entertainment, energy), consumer affairs, international affairs, teaching and research, law, business consulting, government work and journalism. Salaries earned by economics majors nationwide are highly competitive. Employers rank economics as one of the most desirable majors.

Former Intern Testimonials

 

"Interning with Senator Feinstein’s Los Angeles office has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening experiences I have ever had.  Staff members challenge interns to not only write and reason at their highest levels but also discover and pursue what they are truly passionate about. In addition, interns have excellent opportunities to learn from and network with inspiring, successful leaders in the Los Angeles community. Simply put, interning at Senator Feinstein’s office helped to reform and develop my interests into possible career opportunities.”

 –AJ, Spring-Summer 2013

 

"My time as a summer intern in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Los Angeles office was truly an unforgettable experience.  The chance to work with and learn from some of Senator Feinstein’s highest ranking staffers has allowed me to gain experience and knowledge that I could not have received from anywhere else.  Engaging in some of the foremost issues in American politics and working first-hand with constituents has been remarkably eye-opening and given me an unmatched understanding of the Democratic process.  Actively contributing to one of the most prominent leaders in the Senate is an incredibly rewarding feeling and one I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life and career.” – Jamie, Summer 2013

The N Crowd in the Office of Alumni Relations would like to share with you an exciting, new online resource for students: The Matador Network. The CSUN Career Center and CSUN Alumni Association have proudly partnered together to launch this student-alumni mentoring network. It is an online database that brings together students and CSUN Alumni who can share their professional journey. The goal is to provide a setting for students to establish connections and prepare for the transition to post-colligate life. At the present moment, there are already over 500 alumni mentors in the system from all departments on campus, several of which are from the Economics Department. Interested students would need to simply create an online profile and can search for mentors through a variety of filters which include major and industry.

 

This tool will prove invaluable to student success. For further information and to sign up:
