The FDIC is one of the nation’s premier financial regulatory agencies. Its mission is to promote stability and public confidence in the U.S. financial system, and its employees have an opportunity to pursue meaningful public service careers that have a direct impact on consumers and depositors throughout the U.S. by overseeing banks to ensure that they operate in a safe and sound manner and comply with consumer protection, fair lending, and other laws and regulations; insuring customer deposits in FDIC-insured banks; and serving as receiver for insured banks that fail.
The FDIC has been recognized for several years as the top-ranked medium-sized Federal government agency because of the importance of its mission and its outstanding pay and benefits, employee training and development opportunities, commitment to diversity, and work-life balance. It hires 120-150 new and recent college graduates each year into its selective four-year Corporate Employee Program (CEP) and trains them to be commissioned bank examiners and resolutions and receivership specialists. Those who are successful have continuing opportunities for growth and development throughout their careers with the FDIC.
This is an entry level trainee position with the FDIC, one of the nation’s premier bank regulatory agencies. Financial Institution Specialist (FIS) positions are located at 85 FDIC office locations throughout the U.S. Successful applicants are placed in a 34 year training program leading to professional certification as a commissioned Financial Institution Examiner or Resolutions and Receivership Specialist. The program includes both formal classroom and on-the-job training, and every participant is assigned an individual coach or mentor. Participants receive regular grade and pay increases during the program as they complete established training benchmarks.
During the first year of the program, participants perform rotational assignments to become familiar with the Corporation’s major business functions. They are then placed in one of three disciplines to complete the requirements for a commission: (1) Risk Management (to evaluate the financial condition of insured institutions); (2) Compliance/Consumer Protection (to ensure compliance with fair lending, consumer protection, and community reinvestment statutes and regulations); or (3) Resolutions/Receivership Management (to oversee the closure of failed financial institutions and management of the ensuing receiverships).

Fields of Interest
Political Economy, Applied Microeconomics, Development Economics
I graduated from Middlebury College in 2013 with a B.A. in Chinese and Political Science. Before coming to Stanford, I worked as a senior research associate for three years at the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank in Washington D.C., primarily researching international political economy topics. I am currently interested in exploring questions related to the impact that political and economic institutions have on economic development, and analysis of policies that improve economic growth and social welfare.
I am currently working with David Broockman on a project that explores the impact that the Voting Rights Act had on Southern Politics. I am also working with Ali Yurukoglu on a project that models the supply of cable news to understand the effect of election coverage during the 2012 presidential campaign.
MiddView is Middlebury College’s fall new student orientation program and will include a five-day on campus orientation and three-day trips program.
MiddView Intern: The MiddView Interns are integral members of our MiddView Steering Committee and serve as critical links between student leaders, staff, faculty, new students (first-years, transfers, and exchanges), families, and the Middlebury College community. They are ambassadors of the College and the faces and voices of MiddView. Key responsibilities include developing a vision and schedule for MiddView 2018, communicating with new students and their families, managing the MiddView website, social media, and other communications, planning and assisting with events, managing complex logistics, and training and supervising other student staff. These positions offer employment from March through September 2018. MiddView Interns are expected to work 4-8 hours per week during the academic year and then transition to 37.5 hours per week during the summer (with over-time virtually assured during the week of MiddView).
MiddView Trips Intern: MiddView Trips Interns serve as critical members of the College’s MiddView planning team. They help to design and coordinate all aspects of the MiddView trips; Middlebury’s three day, two-night off-campus adventure that explores Vermont’s cultural, community or outdoor landscapes, providing small-group connections amongst first-year students to ease their transition to college. There are three positions available. Each intern will work on one kind of trip topic: Wilderness trips, Vermont Explorations trips, or Community Engagement trips. All three interns should expect a lot of collaboration between trip types.
