Staff Accountant at Textron Providence, RI - Full-time

COMMENT BY PROFESSOR GRIFFIN:  This is not an internship - it is a full-time position that should appeal to Accounting seniors graduating this month.  It does require that you have had an accounting internship but I wouldn't let that deter you from applying.  If you have good grades and are graduating from UMD this spring with an accounting degree, why not consider this position with a national company that just happens to be located in Providence, RI.  Also, Textron likes UMD grads.  We have had several interning there over the past few years and some have been hired full-time.
