I'm currently working at an economics consulting firm doing antitrust work, having graduated from college a few years ago. In college, although I double majored in economics and political science, I focused mostly on poli sci. I TAed for a few economics classes, but my research was with a political science professor. My job involves a decent amount of Stata programming, but I don't think I have had the type of research experience that grad programs in Economics are looking for. I am applying to PhD programs and MA programs in England and Canada, and I have two LORs from Econ professors and 1 from the Political Science professor I worked with (the project was not data intensive or policy oriented). I doubt that I will get into the PhD programs, so what most likely will happen is that I do a 1 yr masters. Because it will only be a year, I still will need another letter of recommendation. I'm hoping that I could use the summer before the masters program to do research with an economics professor (and thus get some more research experience and a letter), but these experiences seem only to be open to undergrads. Any tips on how I could land such an opportunity?
