    America's part-time worker problem is permanent, San Francisco Fed says

    One problem persists: A historically high number of Americans have part-time jobs, but want full-time positions. Economists long argued that the trend, known as "involuntary part-time," was temporary. But it now appears to be a permanent problem, according to a blog post published Wednesday by the San Francisco Federal Reserve.

    A Master's Degree and Surprise Marriage Proposal at the SF Fed

    Natalie Zohuri is a child of two cultures: American and Persian. The San Francisco Bay Area native believes it's this cultural duality that makes her a valuable asset assisting SF Fed economists. She credits her Iran-born parents, who immigrated to the United States more than 40 years ago, for imbuing her with an emotional intelligence that makes her keenly aware of people's needs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

    Interview

    Application requires teacher letter of recs. There is a phone screen, and if you pass, they fly you in to interview with multiple sections who are interested in you. They mostly ask about your research experience, very light econometrics and economic theory knowledge. When you are flown out for an interview, you are pretty much deemed qualified. At this point, it's about fit and personality.
