Securities and Exchange Commission
Student Honors Business Program
Do you want to perform volunteer business/operations work in a challenging yet professional environment? Begin by investing in your career and future at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)!
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 Summer are full-time only (40 hours per week) to ensure we are providing an enriching and rewarding experience while meeting the needs of the Commission. Academic and/or work-study credit is available to all summer volunteers. We will work with your academic institution to ensure all applicable forms are completed, when and where applicable.
For information about the opportunities and the work that interns do in specific divisions and offices, please read the SEC's website.
