Are you an investigative journalist? Unemployed? The Securities and Exchange Commission may have a job for you!
Here’s what SEC chairwoman Mary Schapiro told Reuters:
Investigative journalism actually would be a pretty interesting skill set for us to have. We’ve talked about financial analysis, we’ve talked about forensic accounting being skill sets that we really need — understanding of complex trading, strategies and systems, but it’s one of the things the SEC has to do. It has to really broaden its horizons and bring in people who think about things a little differently than it has historically.”
Benefits are bound to be superior to new media employers, including health insurance, retirement benefits, and first row seats on perp walks.
