Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Recruiting for Director's Financial Analyst Program

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


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.



Please encourage interested students and alumni to email CFPB_DFA_Program@cfpb.gov. Additionally, they can also reach out to me directly with questions about the position or application process at Elizabeth.Saunders@cfpb.gov.

The Bureau will be hosting hour-long information sessions about the DFA Program and the application process, including a question-and-answer period, conducted over WebEx. These sessions will take place on the following dates:


Session 1:  Tuesday, October 26, 2021 (6PM Eastern)
