I like the Summer Accounting package. It requires a minimum of 10 weeks during the summer of 2016. I will have closed school. All the internships have roles and responsibilities. For the accounting intern, the responsibilities include:
- • Assist in preparing financial statement & analysis

- • Assist accounting managers; cash receipts & petty cash
- • Assist in accounting schedules & filing

Enterprise has achieved significant milestones in its growth. The company has moved on with technological achievements and has managed to cut a niche in the market. It remunerates its workers well and is one of the best-paying employers. It has numerous applications for job and internship offers.
