ECON Does What?!

When thinking about your job options after graduation, it helps to read what other recent graduates have done. Not only does this give you a sense of your possibilities, but you can also learn what you can do now to set yourself up for an interesting job and a fulfilling career. These alumni profiles are a part of our ECON Does What?! newsletter and new profiles are added every month.

Learn from Those who Travelled Before You


You can either browse the different profiles or you can focus in on the job titles that are most interesting to you. If you have any questions after reading what an alumni has done, connect with them on LinkedIn or Terrapin's Connect and ask them directly! These are all students who want to support, advise, and inspire you and they may be the ones referring you to your new job
