Erik J. Nix received his BA in Economics in 2011. He works for APX in San Jose as a Market Operator. Erik works one-on-one with clients such as energy trading firms or power plants to assist them in participating in various energy markets both domestic and international. In a recent email Erik said that “I use analytics that I learned at Chico to create and change how we work with our clients and how best to view and work with different real time data streams. My degree has been very helpful in doing analysis on the job and particularly with Excel, which I constantly use. I have used my knowledge of economics to great effect in my workplace; I was hired because of it.”
