    I worked at SEC as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You will learn ALOT. The internship coordinators organize weekly schedules outlining the which cases you will be working on and whom you will be working with. I worked with the accounting personnel and enforcement personnel. Some of assignments include: bank statement spreadsheets, document translation, and MD&A disclosure analysis. You are encouraged to attend a variety of seminars and familiarize yourself with tools such as the Bloomberg Terminal. All the employees were also extremely helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Although it was a great experience, I would never want to work there. I feel like growth here is not necessarily based on performance but tenure instead.

    Interview Details

    Asked basic questions - most important was why public service/SEC and do you want public service long term. Other than that it was all standard stuff and nothing even noteworthy.

    Interview Questions
    • N/A - it was all pretty straightforward and there was nothing technical or "hard" - they gave me the option of a phone interview, so I guess that shows they're really just interested in 1 or 2 main questions.   Answer Question
