The CFPB’s summer internships: “it gave me the specific experience I needed”

By

We’re recruiting summer interns for our Pathways Program again. If you’re interested in the mission of the CFPB, read the full posting to learn more and apply. The deadline is midnight on Wednesday, December 5. That’s tomorrow!

We’ve asked the Student Ambassadors, former CFPB interns, to share what inspired them to intern with the CFPB and why they’re serving as ambassadors after their service. Previously, we heard from Vanessa, Thomas, and Blythe. This is the last in the series, from Naiema.

Naiema Blanchard
School: University of North Carolina School of Law
Program: J.D. and LL.M.

I am a third year law student at the University of North Carolina and a candidate to earn an LL.M. in European Business Law from Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. I have considerable experience in the banking and financial industry and it is my career goal to use the knowledge I gained as a result of my legal education and professional experience to work for a federal banking regulator. I was inspired to intern at the CFPB last summer because it gave me the specific experience I needed working for the federal government in the banking industry. I strongly believe in the agency’s mission to protect consumer interests in the financial sector. At the CFPB, students can use the experience to meet their future career goals.

If you’re interested in being part of the Pathways Program, you have until midnight, Wednesday, December 5, to apply. To learn more and apply, check out our full announcement.
