    A PH.d degree is best for those who are interested in the teaching or research field. So if you are interested in teaching you could also appear for the NET exam. This will give a good chance to get into any of the recognized colleges in the country. If you are interested in the research field then could also pursue the Junior Fellowship exam. However if you are interest in joining any firm you can choose from both government and private organisation. There is always a need for expert economics to handle key positions in the government organisations like RBI, various government bodies etc. You can also choose to work in field of accountancy, commerce, finance etc. There is also need for economists in non profit organisations, news dailies offices etc. You can choose based on your interest.
