Do You Like to Build…a Start-Up? Venture for America is Looking for You

VFA is a two-year fellowship program for recent undergrads who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities. Fellows learn important startup skills at their five-week Training Camp, apply for jobs within their vetted company network, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 18 cities. When Fellows are ready to start a company—be it two years after college or ten—VFA has the resources (like a crowdfunding competition, accelerator, and seed fund) to help make that dream a reality.

The next deadline to apply to VFA’s Class of 2018 is coming up on Monday, October 2nd at 11:59pm EST. Please go to Handshake to apply here

If they have outstanding questions, they’re more than welcome to check out their new recruitment video or schedule a call with someone on their team.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is recruiting Financial Analysts

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.

  • 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)

Engineering Fellows Program at Kleiner Perkins (KPCB)

KPCB Fellows spend their time working at companies like Pinterest, Coursera, DoorDash, Airbnb, Square, Slack or another company in the #KPFamily. The work experience is incredibly valuable as fellows are mentored by a senior technical leader. At the same time, you are also invited to one-of-a-kind events hosted by KPCB where you meet partners from Kleiner Perkins, CEOs and senior executives from many of our portfolio companies, and other bright fellows who will go on to change technology in the future. The idea is to expose you to as much as we can offer, so that you can leave your the summer with a better understanding of how iconic companies are built and hopefully, one day, start your own or be a part of the beginning of a new venture. As a Fellow, you’ll be joining a network of amazing alumni fellows who have gone on to be venture capitalists, start their own companies, join rapidly growing startups and so much more.

The answer to most questions can be found on

Over the course of a summer, KPCB Design and Engineering Fellows join our portfolio companies, where they develop their technical or design skills and are mentored by an executive within the company. Participants in our new Product Fellows program will get the chance to spend a full year working at a Silicon Valley startup. Fellows will also be invited to attend both private events held by Kleiner Perkins as well as by our portfolio companies, where they can meet other talented engineering and design students, network with luminaries in their respective fields, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area.
