Accounting or Finance Intern AAA Southern New England - Providence RI

Professor' Griffin's comment:  although this is labeled as a finance internship, it is really more of an accounting internship as it is project based and involves the accounting for fixed assets and leases.  I believe this would be an excellent opportunity for a junior, senior or even a May grad.
