The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is recruiting this fall for the Director’s Financial Analyst (DFA) position.
I am a first-year DFA now, and I graduated from George Washington University in May 2020 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. The DFA program has allowed me to do impactful work and seek mentorship from passionate and experienced public servants, so I am eager to encourage other students with similar academic backgrounds and interests 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 consumer financial markets work for Americans.
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. 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 supervision of market participants.
ELIGIBILITY AND HOW TO APPLY
The DFA program is recruiting for full-time positions that begin in June 2022.
Recent graduates who will have received an undergraduate degree on or after April 2019 and before June 2022 are eligible to apply. Those interested should apply at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/careers during our live application window on USAJobs.
The application will be open from December 6th through January 3rd.
To be notified when the application becomes available, students and alumni can send an email expressing interest to CFPB_DFA_Program@cfpb.gov.
