We will specifically learn more about the hiring program/position below during the visit.
The Junior Fellowship program is a selective program that offers non-permanent appointments for a period of two years. Most fellows leave the program well-suited to pursue a graduate degree, or a number of different careers in the U.S. government or with other organizations. Junior Fellows support a wide range of tasks within an office, providing them with exposure to multiple policy issues. Junior Fellows typically perform specific projects that include, but are not limited to, analyzing international economic and financial developments; developing specific policy proposals; conducting analytical studies leading to publication of Congressionally-mandated reports; and drafting briefing documents for bilateral and multilateral meetings, like the International Financial Institutions, G7 and G-20, or Financial Stability Board. Junior Fellows may be selected for a position in any of the IA offices, including regional or functional missions (i.e. development lending and multilateral development banks, international monetary and financial policy, energy and infrastructure, trade and investment, and international financial markets). Positions will be filled with excepted hiring authorities usually at the GS-9 level. Appointments will be for two years.
IA economists produce international policy analyses to support the work of the Secretary and to inform the office’s diverse but interrelated set of activities. These activities include promoting policy positions, securing commitments, and negotiating agreements around the world supportive of U.S. goals. The Office engages with groups of countries on a multilateral basis through fora such as the G-7, the G-20, the International Monetary Fund, and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and in bilateral engagements either directly with counterparts in foreign ministries of finance or through structured forums. Requirements: master's degree in Economics, that included at least 21 semester hours in economics and 3 semester hours in statistics, accounting, or calculus.
All openings at the U.S. Department of the Treasury requires a U.S. citizenship.
