I care a lot about supporting Women in econ but will talk to anyone!
I'm an analyst at EconOne Research and specialize in data cleaning and processing. I'm interested in applied research and using data to answer big questions. I'm excited to be a part of the mentor network because I remember the confusion and panic of being a student and feeling like I didn't know what I wanted to do, and I think the only way to address that confusion is to learn about what's out there and hear from others that it's ok to not know yet!
Don't just think about industry, think about the specific type of work you like doing. Be curious about people and their jobs, especially if it's a field or position you haven't heard of. Ask lots of questions. If you're working somewhere that doesn't feel ideal, think about what you can get out of it that will help you move towards something that is ideal.
