Graduating Senior with No Job

Recommended Posts

I'm finishing my final semester at college from a pretty good university (top 30 for undergrad). I would eventually like to apply to grad school for a PhD in Economics (perhaps Fall 2021 or Fall 2022) and I wanted to know if anyone has any advice for what I could do in the meantime.
I was pretty late to the game, and am only now looking for jobs. I'm not really sure what kind of jobs to apply to, or what to expect, really, given the pandemic, etc. I'm also considering applying to an online Masters in Statistics simultaneously but I'm not sure if that's a good idea.
Below is a rough overview of my profile. 
Mathematics and Economics Double Major. Statistics Minor.
Cumulative GPA: 3.67 | Economics GPA: 3.97 | Mathematics GPA: 3.65
Undergrad Teaching Assistant for 2 years
Honors Thesis in Economics: Graduating with High Honors, and trying to get it published
I have really good relationships with a number of my professors from the Economics and Statistics departments, but I haven't asked for any letters of recommendation yet because I'm not sure what I'll be doing in the next year. I am yet to take the GRE.
I'd really appreciate any advice on what would be a good use of time/ what I should focus on now to eventually get into a good program. Thank you!
