My name is Rebecca Mitchell and I am currently a senior majoring in economics and international & global studies and minoring in environmental studies and legal studies. I’ve spent a large part of my time at Brandeis doing research and work involving economics and environmental issues. After receiving a World of Work Grant to fund my summer internship from the Hiatt Career Center, I worked as an Economics Intern and Research Assistant at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute for their Senior Marine Resource Economist. Due to this experience, I know that I would thrive in a career involving economic research, data analysis, and policy. I am looking for a full-time job at an institution where I can gain more hands-on experience. I would love advice on how to enter the field of economics research and any other advice, connections, or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
