Dear Gregory Fasshauer,

I am writing on behalf of the Research Analyst recruiting team at the
Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Each fall we recruit Research Analysts to
work closely with the economists in our Research group starting the
following fall.  We request your assistance in finding talented seniors to
fill these positions.  Your familiarity with undergraduates at your
institution will be of tremendous help in this effort.

Research Analysts play an integral role in both the policy and research
functions of the Research and Statistics Group.  Our economists, whose
specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets,
international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics, work closely
with Research Analysts.  Upon leaving the Fed, Research Analysts choose to
pursue either graduate school, and are consistently accepted by top
programs, or a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities. In
recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue PhDs in Economics or Finance
at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley,
and Wharton, among others.  Aside from economics, previous RAs have also
gone to law and public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School,
Princeton, Yale, and others.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic
curiosity.  Research Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy,
mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of
these fields is not a necessity.  Successful candidates often have previous
research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research,
public policy, or other related fields.

In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are
typically underrepresented in economics.  It is important to us that we
succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of research analysts each year. Thus
we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to
apply. As a representative of your institution and student body, we ask
that you please help us in passing this message along to any candidates you
may know who may be otherwise hesitant to apply.

Attached to this email, you will also find a brochure with further details
about the Research Analyst position. Applications are being accepted now
until October 15 at

The Research Analyst position is an unparalleled opportunity to work with a
world-class research and policy team.  We would greatly appreciate your
encouragement of bright and interested students to apply.

Rachel Schuh
Research Analyst, Macroeconomic and Monetary Studies
