Corporate Accounting Intern at Battelle Memorial InstituteExpires June 11, 2013
Battelle's Finance Intern Program is seeking an Accounting Intern for Summer 2013. This fulltime temporary position is located at Battelle’s Corporate Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.
Finance Intern Program
The Corporate Finance Group recognizes that work experience relating to the student’s career goal can be beneficial to the student in obtaining permanent employment upon graduation. The internship can serve to strengthen the student’s commitment to a career field; it might, on the other hand, help the intern to identify certain jobs that he or she would not wish to pursue.
We strive for work assignments that are educational and meaningful. Ideally, the intern’s duties will be of a nature similar to duties that would be assigned to a college graduate in a training program. Each summer, Corporate Finance sponsors the Finance Intern Forum in which Finance interns from throughout the Battelle-managed laboratories and corporate meet to share experiences. Interns also have the opportunity to meet with Corporate Officers and other senior-level executives at the forum.
As an accounting intern at Battelle, students will be engaged in the daily operations of the accounting department. Interns will receive training from full-time staff in the various segments of accounting, including but not limited to: general ledger maintenance, journal entry creation and input, financial statement preparation, subsidiary accounting, and consolidation. They will receive “hands-on” experience in using accounting software and learning how the data moves within the software to meet reporting requirements set forth by GAAP and other authoritative sources.
THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE POSITION:
- Undergraduate juniors and seniors pursuing a major course of study in a business related program with preference given to Finance or Accounting majors
- Overall GPA of 3.0 and above
- US citizenship with the ability to obtain and maintain security clearances
