The SEC Internship Program is a unique learning opportunity that brings together highly qualified and motivated students with diverse backgrounds into the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to gain direct practical experience with its work and its current operational needs. It offers an immersive work experience designed to transform them into prospective professionals capable of applying the theoretical knowledge in the workplace. At the same time, the internship program ensures, where possible, optimal use of the student-intern’s aptitude with a view to contributing to the improved management of the workload of the SEC.
The entire program is anchored on three (3) pillars:
a. Possible solution to structural unemployment
As a mentoring institution, the SEC seeks to do its part in addressing the pressing issue of structural unemployment problem of the national government, in which half-baked graduates enter the labor force but aren’t employable by the industry.
b. Resource augmentation
The SEC could use the infusion of fresh talent to supplement its human capital and reinvigorate its public service delivery.
c. Strategic investment in terms of workforce replenishment
Through the internship program, the SEC seeks to invest in the creation of a pool of prospective employees or new hires as part of its contingency workforce planning.
The SEC may accept interns provided that the following minimum qualifications are met:
1. Enrolled in an Undergraduate or a Law Degree Program
