Careers at BLS

Ranada Robinson


Ranada Robinson, Field Economist, Atlanta, GA

Ranada Robinson"Working for the federal government provides job security and a competitive benefits package. I also chose to work at BLS so that I could have real-world experience collecting and analyzing data that is actually used.

I feel honored that what I do has an impact on indices, such as the Employment Cost Index, which is a major economic indicator. Since I started working at the BLS as an Economist, I have become more outgoing and much more familiar with the labor market in the Atlanta region."
