White House Council of Economic Advisers
The White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) is currently looking for top students to participate in our spring 2015 internship program. In the past, interns have been closely involved in all areas of CEA’s work, including researching issues related to policy, gathering data and academic literature, performing econometric analysis, and presenting analysis through charts and written products. Because CEA is a small organization with wide-ranging responsibilities, the internship experience is substantive and challenging.
Both graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to apply. Internship positions in the spring can be either full- or part-time.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until October 31st.
Details on the application process can be found on the CEA website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/cea/jobs/internships

Staff members challenge interns to not only write and reason at their highest levels but also discover and pursue what they are truly passionate about. In addition, interns have excellent opportunities to learn from and network with inspiring, successful leaders in the Los Angeles community. Simply put, interning at Senator Feinstein’s office helped to reform and develop my interests into possible career opportunities.” – AJ, Spring-Summer 2013
“My time as a summer intern in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Los Angeles office was truly an unforgettable experience. The chance to work with and learn from some of Senator Feinstein’s highest ranking staffers has allowed me to gain experience and knowledge that I could not have received from anywhere else. Engaging in some of the foremost issues in American politics and working first-hand with constituents has been remarkably eye-opening and given me an unmatched understanding of the Democratic process. Actively contributing to one of the most prominent leaders in the Senate is an incredibly rewarding feeling and one I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life and career.” – Jamie, Summer 2013
