Intern Picks: Accounting Internships

May 16, 2012

Every day, our intern Ting gets a sneak peek at all of the new internships being posted daily on Each week he’ll choose a theme and highlight a few of the new internships he thinks are cool/useful/interesting.

By Ting-Tien Wee

Last week I covered finance internships. People often group together accounting and finance because they deal with very similar topics, but there are a couple of main differences between them. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, financial managers “produce financial reports, direct investment activities, and develop strategies and plans for the long-term financial goals of their organization” whereas accountants “prepare and examine financial records. They ensure that financial records are accurate and that taxes are paid properly and on time.” So both jobs have to do with handling a company’s assets, but finance majors will typically work more on how a company distributes these assets while accountants record those activities.

Here are a few of our top accounting internships of the week:
