Accounting Internship at Oak Park Place

Oak Park Place is dedicated to providing alternatives for older adults who require varying levels of assistance but who wish to remain as independent as possible. Oak Park is currently looking for an accounting intern to help its accountants with account reconciliations and standardizing GL accounts. This is a great opportunity to learn or improve upon your accounting skills. Interns would also prepare journal entries and assist with typical tasks including data entry, photo copying and filing.
