SEC accounting fellow program now accepting applications.

The Securities and Exchange Commission Office of the Chief Accountant will accept applications for two-year terms as professional accounting fellows (PAFs) until December 31, 1992. The fellows will be selected in early 1993 and begin their terms next June or July.

During their terms, the PAFs work directly with the chief accountant and are involved in the study and development of rule proposals under federal security laws, liaison with professional accounting standard-setting bodies and consultation with registrants on accounting and reporting matters.

PAF candidates should have at least six years' experience in public accounting or in an organization providing similar experience in financial accounting and reporting. One year of this experience must have been at the managerial level. Applicants must be thoroughly familiar with technical accounting and auditing literature and current issues confronting the profession.

Each applicant must submit background information and a 4-to-10-page essay on an accounting subject of personal interest, and directly related to the work of the SEC, by December 31, 1992. A full description of the program and application procedures is available from the Office of the Chief Accountant, Securities and Exchange Commission, Mall Stop 9-5, 450 Fifth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20549.
