Christopher R. McCully '03, chief financial officer, Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, reports that the State of Maryland is looking for budget analyst applicants for the State Budget Office. Those interested should have a master's degree in either public administration, finance, business administration, or accounting. "I believe this provides an excellent opportunity for those who want to participate at a very high level of government, providing recommendations and analyzing state agency budgets and programs," he writes. "Given the location, this also provides candidates with an excellent opportunity to move to the federal level if they decide that state government is not right for them." More info.
