“The concepts I have learned in Economics have helped propel me in this career because I am more aware of what is going on in the economy,” Jason stated in a recent email.  “Things are not looking too great at the moment, and many people, families, and businesses are being offset by the ongoing pandemic. A lot of these people can benefit from having a proper plan of action for future events that may occur. If 2020 has taught us anything, it has shown that the future is uncertain, but with a plan, we can help counter the effects of an occurrence similar to what is currently going on.”  Jason added that he is available to help students who are interested in developing a career plan.
