I'm looking for summer internships on the Career and Internship Connections (CIC) site right now, thanks to Hiatt, and I just stumbled across the coolest-sounding job ever.
Too bad they stopped accepting applications on Nov. 28th. It's still a fun read though.
***PLEASE NOTE: U.S. Secret Service representatives will be attending the morning career fair only. They look forward to meeting with you and discussing employment/internship opportunities on the day of the event.
The United States Secret Service is mandated by statue and executive order to carry out two significant missions: protection and criminal investigations. During the course of their careers, special agents carry out assignments in both of these areas an must be available to be assigned to duty stations anywhere around the world.
The Secret Service protects:
-The president, the vice president (or other individuals next in order of succession to the Office of the President), the president-elect
-the immediate families of the above individuals
-former presidents, their spouses for their lifetimes, except when the spouse remarries. In 1997, Congressional legislation became effective limiting Secret Service protection to former presidents for a period of not more than 10 years from the date the former president leaves office
-children of former presidents until age 16
-visiting heads of foreign states or governments and their spouses traveling with them, other distinguished foreign visitors to the United States, and official representatives of the United States performing special missions abroad
-major presidential and vice presidential candidates, and their spouses within 120 days of a general presidential election

-National Special Security Events, when designated as such by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security
The Secret Service investigates:
-violations of laws relating to counterfeiting of obligations and securities of the United States
-financial crimes that include, but are not limited to, financial information fraud, false identification documents, access device fraud, advance fee fraud, computer and telecommunications fraud, electronic funds transfers and money laundering as it relates to the agency's core violations
