Default Final Year Worry

Hello all,

Am sure you have been in this stage of your life before seeing how the forum people are older than I am.
Long story short:

I'm final year undergrad at nus, in fass with econs as my major. I'm not having honours so im totally out of the civil service job market. I'm only left with one choice
1. Revise expectations and land any decent job instead of
2. Expecting to be an economist

Any seniors from econ majors who can share what to expect?
I know im not going to draw indifference curves and budget lines on my work desk hahaha

Give me a heads up, will you?

Advice is to get a banking internship asap and aim to get into banking.

Bank is the only way to go. From there get experience, useful certifications and be involved in projects.

Sorry to say but you have to do it the hard way. Unless you managed to network and get good contacts, your career is going to take a detour. Maybe my advice to you is to accept the situation but you can still control what happens in the future.
