The Economics Career Office (ECO) was launched in the Fall of 2013 thanks to the vision, commitment, and support of faculty and friends of the department. Our mission is to equip economics majors with tools and resources to successfully reach the next steps in their career planning.  We accomplish this by presenting career events with opportunities to meet employers and economics alumni, career advising from major declaration to graduation, and by collaborating and communicating with the UVA Career Center. Students are encouraged to partner with the ECO and dedicate time to independent research and networking to build bridges with the professional world. Planning and practice will help students in their internship and job searches during their years as economics majors and will provide lifelong skills.

We look forward to connecting employers with our talented, highly capable, and diverse student body and welcome recruiters to contact us to discuss opportunities. Please visit Career Services Information for Employers.
