    Business students will be assigned to work with SEC staff members on projects and assignments that cover a broad range of the Commissions' work. That work depends upon the division or office where the student works. Business intern assignments range from supporting securities regulations to assisting in professional administrative duties such as human resources, contracting, auditing, etc.

    Volunteer internship opportunities in the Spring can be either full-time or part-time, depending upon your school schedule and the needs of the Commission. We only require 15 hours per week minimum to participate. Academic and/or work-study credit is available to all volunteers.

    For information about the opportunities and the work that interns do in specific divisions and offices, please read the SEC's website.
