2) Assistant Analyst position at the Congressional Budget Office

The Congressional Budget Office is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. CBO's Budget Analysis Division seeks an Assistant Analyst to work within its two health analysis units.  This position is open only to candidates who have or are completing a bachelor's degree; it is not for those who have or are completing a master's degree.  This is not a permanent position: At the end of a two-to-three-year appointment, Assistant Analysts typically leave CBO to continue their education in such disciplines as economics, public policy, medicine, or the law. 

Tasks will include monitoring Medicare demonstrations and the implementation of major health care legislation; collecting and analyzing data; conducting literature reviews; and developing and producing summaries, charts, and tables.  The division's health analysts work closely with key Congressional staff on U.S. health care policy, preparing multiyear spending projections for federal health care programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, the health insurance marketplaces, and the Public Health Service. 

Candidates must have a bachelor's degree with a major or minor emphasizing quantitative analysis, strong writing and computer skills, and a desire to work on issues of current interest to the Congress. The position requires outstanding quantitative skills (including facility with Microsoft Excel or other statistical software packages). It also requires initiative and the ability to work well with senior staff; to gather data for use in addressing policy questions; to prepare spreadsheets, statistical analyses, slide presentations, and reports; and to complete assignments promptly. 

The salary range is $40,000 to $44,000, and the salary will be commensurate with related experience. CBO offers excellent benefits and a collegial, respectful work environment.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, résumé, brief writing sample, unofficial transcripts, and contact information for three references online at www.cbo.gov/careers

UCLA CENTER FOR COMMUNITY LEARNING | Academic Credit for Internships

Are you interested in getting academic credit for your internship? Then apply to take a 195CE Internship Course through the Center of Community Learning. If you're a Junior or Senior status (completed 90 or more units) and have good academic standing (at least 3.0 GPA), you may qualify.

Once you secure your internship, contact the Center for Community Learning to schedule an intake appointment to be admitted into the course.


ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for 195CE credit, internships must involve challenging college-level work and must take place at a supervised off-campus workplace (no telecommuting or home offices). Internships may be paid or unpaid, but positions that would be classified strictly as part-time or full-time jobs by the Department of Labor (including most retail and commission-based sales positions) are NOT eligible for credit.
