Internal Audit Internship - Canton, MA

COMMENT by PROFESSOR GRIFFIN:  I like this one because it is with a large company, it will be a professional environment, and internal audit exposes you to lots of different areas.  Internal auditors can see so much more of an operation and that could help you better define a career path later on after you have some experience under your belt!
