If you are a securities law nerd and you feel like now might be a good time to take part in the Great Resignation, take a look at the SEC’s recent job postings for the Division of Corporation Finance. Corp Fin is now hiring for the job of Chief Counsel, which I held in Corp Fin from 2003 to 2007. I always say that my time as Chief Counsel was the best job I ever had a securities lawyer, because every day you get to “drink from the firehose” of securities law issues. It is also a great opportunity to work with the very talented Staff in the Office of Chief Counsel, in Corp Fin and in the other Offices and Divisions at the SEC. If you have any questions about what it is like to serve in Corp Fin or the job of Chief Counsel in particular, always feel free to reach out to me.
