Some, but much less. Some of the skills will carry over. But usually a recommendation letter is most valuable when it comes from an economist. There are some political scientists whose work is close to economics, but not usually.
I'm a master student in Economics and want to do a PhD after I graduate. I have the opportunity to apply for a RA but it's not in Economics but in Political Science (Negotiation Management). I haven't worked as a RA so far and was wondering if doing one in political science will still be useful when it comes to applying for my PhD?
Thanks for your help!
