Are you a talented college student looking for a way to jump-start your career? If so, this summer 2021 opportunity could be a great fit for you! We're looking for someone who is excited about learning…about us, about our organization, and about how we do things.


What You'll Do: As an intern for our Payroll and Retirement Benefits department, you will have a variety of assignments, with mentors to lead and support you in your work. Your primary tasks throughout your internship will include assisting with the preparation of retirement plan financial statements, payroll filings and employee benefit plan annual report filings, as well as updating retirement plan summaries and organizing our department SharePoint site. You will also assist with other department sponsored projects. Also, throughout the duration of your internship you will have the opportunity to attend various business meetings.


Our internship program holds an 80/10/10 approach, meaning that 80% of your work time will involve performing tasks or working on projects within your hired work area. Another 10% of the time, you will be exposed to learning in other areas within your assigned division to get more corporate experience. Then, the final 10% will be spent in shared experiences across the organization, where you will get to really learn about our culture and work environment.
