We are a unique organization. As the largest of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts we’re a significant part of central bank of the United States, although we’re not a government institution. We are an independent, self-funded, non-profit organization with a very important mission: to promote low inflation, full employment, and financial stability.

We recognize that different perspectives produce the best thinking, while also enriching our lives.

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