Why the Fed?
It's at the center of the action. It offers a great opportunity to contribute to the biggest financial issues of our day in a meaningful way.
I am an attorney in Corporate Affairs. We advise our colleagues on a wide range of legal issues, from immigration to employment to tax law. So far, I have been focusing on tax and employee benefits matters, assisting various departments on tax compliance matters and advising our business teams who are working on various financial stability programs.
Challenges and Rewards of My Job
One of the things that makes my job the most challenging is also what makes it so rewarding. The pace and variety of my days is always changing. Most days I walk in with a set agenda, thinking I know exactly what Ill be doing that day, then the phone rings or an e-mail comes in and often Im pulled in an entirely different and exciting direction.
How Is the Fed Unique?
The Fed is a vibrant institution with strong values and culture. Above all, the implicit and explicit emphasis on personal and professional integrity makes the Fed unlike any company Ive been involved with before.
