2) U.S. PIRG

U.S. PIRG

At U.S. PIRG, we had a busy summer working on our top campaigns: We urged McDonald’s to get our life-saving antibiotics out of its entire meat supply chain; called on states to ban Roundup, which has been linked to cancer; and published a shopper’s guide for buying non-toxic school supplies.

On these issues and others, our mission is to champion the public interest – to raise our voices on behalf of the public when decisions are being made that affect our health, our safety or our rights.

Right now, we are hiring a team of fellows to join our 2019 class. Fellows mobilize the support it takes to win a specific campaign, whether it’s zeroing out plastic waste, ensuring that our food or transportation systems are healthy and sustainable, or calling on manufacturers to remove toxic chemicals from their consumer products. Interested students can go to jobs.uspirg.org to learn more and apply.

3) Job for Recent Grad

Job for Recent Grad

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. Would you be willing to forward the information below to any students in your department who may be interested?

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.

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)

HOW TO APPLY

We are currently accepting resumes through our 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 our live application windows on USAJobs. We will open one window in mid-October and another in early 2019. Official window date announcements are forthcoming.

Please encourage interested students to reach out to me with any questions about the position or the application process at madeleine.kurtz@cfpb.gov.
