SEC Honors Program - Spring Semester

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 24, 2017 11:43 am

Does anyone know what the process is/how long it takes to hear back after submitting your application? I applied to work for a regional office.

Also, can anyone comment on the type of work externs perform and how prestigious the SEC looks versus the FTC or USAO?

Find out who is in charge of the office's program from your externship coordinator or former intern and send your materials to that contact. Waited over a month before i did that and got a phone interview within a couple days.

Dont think any externship can be considered prestigious, but it likely helps with your narrative if you want to work for that agency full-time. I think the sec app actually asked if you externed with them so im assuming it has some impact.

For sec enforcement we did a bunch of westlaw and memos, docs review, following up with tips, and notetaking in interviews. Also did a lot of chatting and brain picking with some really accomplished people, which i thought was the best part of the experience.
