Following the success of the ESSA Launch Night, we held our first cornerstone career-based event with the full support of the Economics Society of Australia on Wednesday, the 14th of March. Thank you to all members, including those who signed up on the night or at our previous events, and more broadly to everyone that attended the event! The ESSA team hopes that you have gained important knowledge about the numerous job opportunities available to an economics student.
Okay, so as you are reading this, you may or may not have been sold on ESSA’s mission and vision to show how economics helps you in the industry. During this article, I would like to cement the view that economics helps in the workforce.
During the summer, I joined Deloitte for my internship, in Consulting (Strategy and Operations). This was a great experience and really helped to put to use the theories and skills we learn at university. During my project, there was a lot of economics, finance and accounting. However, economics really made it easier to decipher and get through the relevant tasks throughout the project.
