The Congressional Budget Office is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. Three units within CBO’s Budget Analysis Division are seeking a total of two assistant analysts. Specific duties will vary but will include research assistance, statistical analysis, fact-checking and quality assurance, database management, literature review, and graphics production to address policy questions and prepare analyses to meet the needs of Congressional committees.
This is an entry-level position for a period not to exceed three years—ideal for those interested in substantive work experience before attending graduate school. These position are only for candidates who have or are completing a bachelor’s degree; it is not for those who are have or are completing a master’s degree.
Assistant Analysts often pursue professional or graduate degrees in fields such as economics and finance following their two- to three-year appointments at CBO.
