This is a list of places for econ and econ-adjacent undergrads to find potential places to work. This is a work in progress.
If you are a faculty who is sharing this with your class, can you shoot me an email to let me know (email@example.com).
If you would like me to add your organization, you can also just send me an email with the link to the careers page.
The American Economic Association also has some resources.
