Hi,
I'm a first year economics student and I'm looking for a summer job which is related to economics and could give me an insight into a future career. I'm going on holiday for two weeks over the summer so I'm not sure if i can do a job which requires you to do 2/3 months.
I'm more interested in gaining valuable experience which is related to economics then pay (although it would be nice to have some extra money) however, I'm unsure which business I should try to find a job in.
Does anyone have any suggestions or have been in this situation before and have any advice?
Thanks

Is there any specific jobs you want to do? Or does it have to be in the economics field? Also, do you want to do paid or unpaid work? That’s pretty important to know first of all before applying for things. If it’s economics related, l’d recommend applying to banks or accounting firms or even the government. It all depends on the kind of environment you want to work in and the flexibility you’d like to have

Yeah, the problem with banks is that they only really do internships which mainly accept second years. Ideally i'd love to be in a firm which does research/data analytics but I doubt there are many around. The only problem is I can only do this for about 6 weeks over the summer. I honestly don't mind if its paid, as long as I get accommodation costs sorted.

Well, how about you look at the internship the Bank of England is offering cause that is a paid internship of about 72 pounds per day which is about 502 pounds a week! I'm sure you could sort rent for a month worth of accommodation. And then maybe you could do another internship once the Bank Of England one is finished. I'll link some internships you could do!

There are more l'm sure but instead of just doing one, why not just apply for all and see where you get into. Then, you have more of a choice on where you go and how to plan your summer.
Good luck!
