    I worked at SEC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Truly collegial work environment, engaging work assignments, supportive and bright supervisors who enjoy what they do and teaching interns

    Cons

    The SEC wasn't hiring at the time, but about ten months later they were. Unfortunately, I was left in a black hole because I didn't qualify for a position because I had since graduated from law school but wasn't a judicial clerk.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEC.

    General Interview, they asked about my experience, why I want to work with the SEC, why I'm interested in the work that the SEC does. It's important to mention recent policies the SEC has enacted, it makes you standout and shows you're up to date on what the SEC is doing.
