    Srs answer is whatever you want to do that doesn't otherwise require a prerequisite degree. So yh, you could apply to merchandising/buying grad schemes if you wanted to.

    Business consultants are known to consultant companies on business matters. Only on rare occasions though.

    What they'll tell you will probably be quite terrible. But, as I said, you could do whatever you want to do that doesn't require a certain degree.

    Be that IB, trading, consulting, law, management grad schemes, merchandising grad schemes, HR grad schemes, finance grad schemes, buying positions, software engineering (if you actually have the skills), accounting, asset management, events planning god knows. Just whatever.

    Pretty much anything unless it is highly technical STEM work (medicine, engineering etc).

    Economics is a pretty broad church within itself. There is the technical maths element, there's a human element, there's a history element, there is a political element, there is a business element. This means it can take you in many different directions if you then want to go and use your degree in the workplace (which I think is what you are really asking here). My advice would be to work out which area you are interested in and then choose a career path that is suitable.

    But you are going to be able to apply for hundreds of different graduate schemes, both private and public sector, or have a good degree in your CV that will get you noticed for entry level jobs. That is if the rest of your CV is half decent and you get good grades of course.

    My fellow economics grads from when I studied now have such a wide range of job titles it would be difficult to list them all. They range from CFO and Owner to unemployed.

    You should be doing this anyway to be honest. That's what they are there for. Although they are probably only going to give you the same advice as you will get in here.

    Go and get some work experience and find out what career might be for you. The fact you only want to do something for a year though is a little concerning - even for a short term contract, most employers will want to see you have a longer term interest in the work you are doing.
