Careers at BLS

Marie Chen


Marie Chen, Field Economist, Los Angeles, CA

Marie Chen"I first became interested in working for BLS while taking economics courses at school, where I used BLS data frequently. When I was job hunting after graduation, I wanted a job that allowed me to gain in-depth knowledge of how compensation statistics are produced.

This job has not only answered my questions, but has also allowed me to enhance my skills and gain practical insight in the areas of labor and compensation. I interact on a daily basis with employers in Southern California to gather compensation data by e-mail, telephone, or in person."
