About FDIC - Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

The FDIC is one of the nation's premier financial regulatory agencies. Its mission is to promote stability and public confidence in the U.S. financial system, and its employees have an opportunity to pursue meaningful public service careers that have a direct impact on consumers and depositors throughout the U.S. by overseeing banks to ensure that they operate in a safe and sound manner and comply with consumer protection, fair lending, and other laws and regulations; insuring customer deposits in FDIC-insured banks; and serving as receiver for insured banks that fail. The FDIC has been recognized for several years as the top-ranked medium-sized Federal government agency because of the importance of its mission and its outstanding pay and benefits, employee training and development opportunities, commitment to diversity, and work-life balance. It hires 120-150 new and recent college graduates each year into its selective four-year Corporate Employee Program (CEP) and trains them to be commissioned bank examiners and resolutions and receivership specialists. Those who are successful have continuing opportunities for growth and development throughout their careers with the FDIC. It also sponsors annually the Financial Management Scholars Program, a paid summer internship program for juniors, that can lead to post-graduation employment offers in the CEP for successful participants.
