I had the privilege of being selected to participate in the Student Honors Program at the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s New York Regional Office for both the fall and spring semester of my senior year. It was an incredible experience.
During my internship I assisted Security Compliance Examiners with two exams, as part of the National Exam Program. I learned a lot about the financial markets and regulation. I had the opportunity to review a company’s internal documents and document trends. I created work documents and shared the results of my work with staff. I did research to understand the company’s internal policies and procedures to ensure that the company was operating in compliance. I took notes at meetings and created a finalized version of official meeting minutes.
