  • Financial Analyst position

    The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is recruiting this spring for the Director’s Financial Analyst position



    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 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 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)
