    Research Experience:
    • I have been a research assistant for several academic institutions (both on campus, abroad, and in Washington DC) including at the Federal Reserve Bank. However, many of these research assistantships were at public policy research institutions, and thus my work was not necessarily strictly on economic research, but more on the impact of certain economic policies on other issues, etc.
    • I am also in the process of finishing a Departmental Thesis on International Trade issues with one of the individuals who will be writing my recommendation letter.
    • In addition, this summer I received a university fellowship to pursue independent research abroad on labor market concerns. My mentor for this project will also be writing a recommendation letter for me.
    • I have not published a paper yet though.

    Letters of Recommendation: 3 economics professors (including 2 research mentors - one for my trade project and one for my labor project described below)

    Research Interests: International trade, labor, game theory

    Are your three letter writers actively publishing currently? Also, how confident are you in the strength of these letters? Given positive answers to both of these questions, this looks like a great profile to me. (more math courses would help, but I don't think it's seriously lacking)
