Hello everyone! My name is Isabella and I am an analyst in CRA’s Boston office. Since joining CRA’s Finance Practice in the summer of 2015, I have had the opportunity to work collaboratively with senior staff members on litigation cases requiring rigorous analysis of financial theory and advanced financial modeling. I wanted to use this blog to share with you my thoughts and reflections on working at CRA and my personal experiences of working in the economic consulting industry. Read more >

A little bit about me: I enjoy traveling, yoga, and the outdoors! I started as an analyst in the Competition & Antitrust Economics Practice in Boston last year, in April 2015. Prior to CRA, I grew up in Paris, France and completed a liberal arts education at Swarthmore College. I came into school an undecided major with a curiosity for a diverse range of subjects from Chemistry to Chinese, and developed a strong interest for Economics, Statistics, and Computer Science. Problem solving and applying quantitative analysis to come to a solution is something I love and was one of the reasons economic consulting was attractive to me. Read more >
Hello! My name is Julia Gorman and I’m thrilled to share with you a bit about myself and my time at Charles River Associates.
I’m from Colorado. I miss the sun and mountains, but am learning to love the ocean and seafood. I graduated from Boston College in May 2015, where I majored in Political Science and Economics. My Macroeconomics professor—also my College Fed Challenge coach and thesis advisor—recommended CRA to me junior year. I interned at CRA the summer after junior year and throughout my senior year. Since August 2015, I’ve been full-time in the Antitrust & Competition practice in Boston. Read more >

My name is Spencer, and I am a first year analyst in the Financial Economics Practice here at Charles River Associates’ Washington, DC, office. Hyperbole is cheap and crass, but I am going to break my rule just this once for myself, because my first six months here have been incredible and immensely rewarding—but before we get to that there are basics to get out of the way.

I loved everything about Middlebury College, and I’m so happy I studied Economics, Math, and Computer Science while I was there. Nevertheless, anyone who majored in a quantitative discipline at a liberal arts school can relate to my struggle of seeking a job that could both continue to fill me with knowledge in a variety of disciplines and satisfy my affinity for problem-solving using quantitative reasoning. In many professional spheres, these qualities in a job are mutually exclusive, but I’ve found that economic consulting is the perfect intersection of the two. Read more >
