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.

Matador Network Program
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:
We are always working to recruit additional mentors, so alumni are invited to take part in the program.

CA Dept of Insurance - Job Opportunity
The California Department of Insurance will soon be hiring for our entry-level Insurance Rate Analyst position (pdf). In order to become eligible for a hiring interview, candidates first need to take and pass the Examination which is comprised of a written test.
Attached is the announcement for the upcoming Examination. The application deadline is March 24, 2015 and the examination will be held toward the end of April 2015. Please note that the standard State application form must be submitted. https://www.insurance.ca.gov/0500-about-us/04-employment/02-exams/upload/5IN03.pdf
We are taking steps to post this position in your career center, but I thought personal outreach to Department/Program faculty would be a nice compliment to the database approach.
I started with the Department of Insurance in this very Insurance Rate Analyst position 14 years ago and have had a great tenure here. There are two bureaus that hire from this job class, the Field Rating and Underwriting Bureau, the analysts of which travel to insurance company headquarters all over the country to audit their rating, sales and marketing practices for compliance with California law (positions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sacramento). And the Rate Regulation Bureaus, the analysts of which review insurance company rate applications; these analysts do not travel (positions in Los Angeles and San Francisco).
We are seeking candidates that are interested in learning the business of insurance, and who will be great contributors in a team environment, yet are independent in a way that would enable them to succeed in various locations and corporate environments as they travel and interact with insurers. The opportunities for learning and growth are vast in this Department and I hope you’ll share this announcement with eager and talented students who are seeking employment this spring/summer.
