I have been working at SEC (Less than a year)
Great work environment, and almost every attorney is willing to spend time with you on meaningful projects that you can learn from. Hands down the most beneficial internship I did while in law school.
Well its unpaid of course, but thats typical for the majority of government internships so you know that going in.
Contacted by hiring manager for the division. Set up an interview for a week ahead by phone, planning for about 20 minutes. If you are local, you may be called in for an in-person interview. Interview itself was pleasant. Asked about experience, and gave a short case of current events. Walked me through the case and guided an answer, emphasizing there were no wrong answers. After the interview, was contacted within two weeks with an offer.
