i realize from anecdotal experience that most of the zai yr 2/yr 3 econs stewdents atm (like A+ for all econ mods every sem) are either engine ddp students or math/stat dbl majors hmm... plus most of them dont even intend to do honours in econs...

now u know where all the A prusses go to. lol

Eh its not an elite job la. And I started applying very very early. Like in July, before Year 4 sem 1 started. Went for many interviews and got rejected by a few... And finally got two offers in late November. So the job hunt took me about 5 months in total. I had friends who started applying AFTER they graduated, but their job hunt was shorter because they couldn't afford to wait it out. Applying early is always a good signal to potential employers that you are on the ball and not last minute, at the risk of them not wanting to wait for you though.

I have quite a few econs major friends who are selling insurance or doing sales at banks. Its not that bad haha. Another econs major friend who's now doing roadshows and selling MioTV packages has it worse.

This is the life of a normal econs student. The discipline itself tries to inflate its importance by focusing on theoretical and mathematical elegance, at the expense of arguably more useful economic intuition and applications to real life. As such, we are at a disadvantage as compared to those who have stronger background in quantitative methods, and need to queue up behind the tiongs, the double degree elites and the double major elites (esp. math/stats as you pointed out). Hopefully they will leave some scraps for the rest to fight over.

Alternatively, you can go take IS3240 or BSP1005 (not sure if still allowed) and unleash hell.
