Opportunities for economics graduate in Seattle area

Microsoft Loverboy
Feb 4 9 Comments

My girlfriend is currently based in the U.K, rounding up her masters in economics, before taking next steps. So far, her only work experience is internships with top-bracket firms.

We’re trying to get info on the opportunities in this area for someone with her qualifications, with good earning potential. She has a preference for consulting - or at least, work with a “purpose” - but right now, we’re open to looking at all available opportunities.

I’m also doing the opposite - checking out the UK, but settling here is our favoured option.

Any ideas, anyone?

    Does it have to be a pure Econ job? How about finance? That would be easier

    Consulting is always an option too

      OP
      She actually loves consulting. Are there any good consulting options in the area?

      Yes plenty (think of all the large companies in the area: big market for consultants).

    Not sure if there are open jobs, but Zillow has an economic research team.

      Qualtrics and Tableau would also probably have roles that would jive well with a quant research background.

    Amazon , Boeing, Starbucks and many other companies have jobs in their finance departments.
    Did she try looking at their websites ?
    Alternatively, try contract to hire ...
