I'm an Econ major but haven't actually started the courses yet since I'm just getting into my 3rd year. Any economists here? Web searches always say it's a good field, with good pay and jobs available but I want some first hand experience. What kind of jobs can I expect to find with a masters, how common are government jobs, is the starting pay decent? What I see online for starting pay seems optimistic to me, but maybe I just have low standards.
