JOB SUMMARY:

The SEC's mission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. The agency seeks high-caliber professionals who share the same values of integrity, fairness, accountability, resourcefulness, teamwork, and commitment to excellence.

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission is now hiring students for its 2013 Fall Internship Program in Washington and 11 other cities. Though these are volunteer positions, they offer students responsibilities and experiences that promote their careers. Over the course of the fall semester, students work with Commission staff on several projects particular to the specific Division or Office to which they are assigned. Students participate in seminars/workshops on various aspects of the federal securities laws. We ask that our interns commit a minimum of 15 hours per week for a semester.

 

We have high expectations for our interns, often assigning them the same work we would give a newly-hired staff. Students assist with tasks such as drafting regulations, reviewing filings, or preparing for interviews and testimony. They spend hours every day with line employees, and they support senior executives.
