INTERESTED IN A CAREER IN PUBLISHING?
Ralph Zerbonia, a 2000 graduate of both the University of Michigan and the Publishing Institute at the University of Denver, will be on campus on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 in 3222 Angell Hall at 4:00 PM to present an information session for the Publishing Institute. Ralph will discuss with you the kinds of opportunities the publishing industry affords and the training the Publishing Institute offers.
The Publishing Institute is an intensive, four-week summer program that provides a broad overview of all aspects of the publishing industry in lectures and hands-on workshops in editing and marketing. The faculty members are all professionals working in the publishing industry, and they cover topics from the role of the editor to marketing, from international publishing and markets to the work of the literary agent, from textbook to digital publishing.
Last year in 2017, three U of M students were accepted into this summer program.
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)
CFPB will be on campus for the career fair on October 4th and are also hosting an information session with the Honors College in the evening of October 3rd, and you can email Dominic.Russel@cfpb.gov for more information.
