  • 6. Tell Your Story Example From the beginning I have loved numbers and I understand that people may think that is cliché for an Economics major, but that is why I am an Economics major. And it’s not just numbers, it is the stories that these numbers tell and how they can impact the way an organiza8on makes decisions. They tell stories about our personal lives too and impact the way we make personal decisions every day. When I first came to Duke, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to incorporate this interest into what I would like to pursue long term, but a class project in my second Economics class let me know I was on the right track. I furthered this interest by comple8ng internships with the Department of Commerce and also with Bloomberg. I wanted to have internships that I could compare and contrast so I would know whether I wanted to pursue a government job or the private sector. With the DOC, I assisted a professional staff member within the Bureau of Economic analysis in gathering primary and secondary research which was then used in a preliminary interpre8ve report for making decisions regarding monetary policy. With Bloomberg I sourced and qualified data which I then used in upda8ng the Bloomberg Database. Like the DOC, this data was used to make decisions. I have really enjoyed these opportuni8es to gather data, and am now wan8ng to use these skills to not only gather data, but directly impact decision-­‐making. I hope it is with your company that I will be able to do this. Example I am a senior here at Duke majoring in Economics and also pursuing the Markets & Management Cer8ficate. I’ve held two internships during my 8me at Duke, one with Bloomberg and another with the US Department of Commerce. I think these have provided me with a great set of skills to implement at your company.
