CFPB Director's Financial Analyst Program

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

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 CFPB 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 CFPB. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, education, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities throughout the Bureau.
We are recruiting for positions that begin after the 2016-2017 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:

  • Graduate school (Columbia Economics, Harvard Business, Yale Law)
  • Private industry (Amazon, Uber, Wells Fargo)
  • Public sector (Department of the Treasury, NY Fed)
We will be at the campus-wide Career Fair on September 22, and hope to meet some of your students there!

We are currently accepting resumes through our posting on the career center website. However, the official application can be found here during the following open application windows:

Window 1: September 16 - September 20
 Window 2: October 13 - October 17
