A (paid) Learning Project for a Senior Accounting Major

Attention Senior Accounting Majors:

Community Nurse and Hospice Care, Inc., a provider of home health care and hospice services, is looking for an accounting major (preferably a senior with good grades) with good writing and observation skills, to work on a short-term project (15-20 hours). This a a paid assignment that involves working with the accounting staff to produce documentation (i.e., a policy and procedure manual) that will help guide staff.

Therefore, you will learn how the accounting process works at this agency and will need to write procedures and policies that would guide future staff or would aid continuity. The hours are flexible and a schedule can be worked out to accommodate the student's school schedule and homework commitments. I think this sounds like a good assignment for someone looking to add an interesting entry on the resume. It does not qualify for internship credit as it doesn't require enough hours however, this opportunity does present an interesting learning experience and a win/win for both student and employer. Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter by email to Randy

At Enterprise, you won't be a glorified gopher getting coffee or filing all day. Our interns go at the same energized pace and take on the same challenges and responsibilities as our Management Trainees.
