I graduated from Columbia University in 2017 and have since been working as an Analyst at Cornerstone Research, an economic and financial consulting firm that provides expert testimony in high-profile litigation. I have had rewarding opportunities to collaborate with leading academic experts while developing quantitative and qualitative skills.

As a quick introduction to our firm and culture, Cornerstone:

· Recruits students from all majors; our most successful analysts have a demonstrated interest in research and desire to learn complex economic and financial concepts;

· Works across industries including antitrust, healthcare, intellectual property, and securities and has a generalist model that provides analysts with opportunities across sectors; and

· Maintains a positive work-life balance with a strong analyst culture.

Cornerstone is an ideal place to start a career. Analysts often go on to top M.B.A., J.D., or Ph.D. graduate programs or proceed directly into technology, business, finance, or nonprofit work.

Considering this, I would greatly appreciate it if you could share this message with the Department of Economics. We think students from this group would enjoy and benefit from our firm and culture.
