The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) Seeking Director’s Financial Analyst

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) is recruiting this fall for the Director’s Financial Analyst position, and we want to encourage graduating seniors to apply.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM 

This unique, two-year rotational fellowship sits at the intersection of the federal government and the financial services industry. Director’s Financial Analysts are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem solving skills while helping to make markets for consumer financial products work for Americans. Members of the Director’s Financial Analyst Program will experience diverse roles, responsibilities, and areas of expertise. As a result, in a short period of time, analysts will play an integral role in everything the Bureau does, from rigorous data-driven policy creation and market monitoring to on-site supervision of market participants.

All analysts will complete developmental rotations in offices throughout the Bureau. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, education, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities throughout the Bureau.

They are recruiting for positions that begin after the 2018-2019 academic year.

Previous Director’s Financial Analysts have used the program as a springboard to further their careers. Some graduates of the program have moved on to:

  • Grad school (e.g., Yale, MIT, Columbia, Harvard)
  • Private industry (e.g., Amazon, Uber, Wells Fargo, PayPal)
  • Public sector (e.g., Department of the Treasury, NY Fed, local government)

HOW TO APPLY

They are currently accepting resumes through their posting on the career center website. However, to officially apply, students will need to do so at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/careers during either of the live application windows on USAJobs. There will be one open window in mid-October and another in early 2019. Official window date announcements are forthcoming.

Please encourage interested students to reach out to Kaitlyn McMillan with any questions about the position or the application process at Kaitlyn.McMillan@cfpb.gov. Many thanks for your help!
