Day at the Fed
College students and their instructors are invited to participate in the fourth annual “Day at the Fed,” on Friday, Oct. 2, 2015, at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Hosted by the Banking Supervision and Regulation (BS&R) department, this event provides the opportunity to learn more about bank examiners, the critical role they play in the safety and soundness of the financial system, and the career opportunities available in this field. The St. Louis Fed oversees state member banks in the Federal Reserve's Eighth District, which includes all of Arkansas and portions of: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee. It is headquartered in St. Louis, with branches in Little Rock, Louisville and Memphis.
In addition to participating in a variety of presentations, students will have the opportunity to interact with potential hiring managers, as well as meet and network with senior St. Louis Fed officers, bank examiners and other BS&R staff.
The event also offers educational opportunities for instructors, including a “professor's roundtable” with BS&R managers and officers, and a special presentation on the Eighth District economy from a St. Louis Fed economist. Instructors can also participate in relevant sessions with their students.
“Day at the Fed” is designed for sophomores, juniors and seniors with at least a 3.0 grade point average in business, finance, accounting or related fields.
