Director’s Financial Analyst Position at CFPB

Monday, October 16, 2017

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) 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?



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 2017-2018 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)
  • Public sector (e.g. Department of the Treasury, NY Fed, local government)




We are currently accepting resumes through our posting on the career center website. However, the formal application will be available on the website below during the following open application windows:




Window 1: September 22 - September 26, 2017


Window 2: October 12 - October 16, 2017
