Applications are now open for the 2021 summer accounting internship at Amazon. We are seeking data-driven, business-minded, results-oriented financial analyst interns who are pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in accounting. Included as part of the internship is the intern project, which requires the candidate to flex their accounting, analytical, and business understanding while also optimizing, improving, and driving quality to solve a problem or improve an existing process. This role will interact with various business partners that span across accounting, finance, operations, and technology organizations within Amazon, and will present the result of the project for evaluation at the end of the internship.
The global accounting organization oversees our financial reporting, internal controls, intercompany, and transfer pricing activities, and supports new business launches globally for Amazon in the consumer products, digital initiatives, merchant, operations, logistics, payments, and cloud computing lines of business. This team is focused on controllership, customer experience, and operational efficiency.
During the 2021 summer internship, interns will be invited to participate in the Amazon Accounting Summer Leadership Program, which is designed to give candidates a glimpse into an accounting profession at Amazon and build their leadership skills. During the program, interns will have the opportunity to meet professionals, engage in Amazon’s culture, and get a glimpse into what a career path in accounting at Amazon looks like. Due to current restrictions, events will be held virtually. If it is considered safe and feasible, candidates will be invited to attend an on campus portion of the Amazon Accounting Summer Leadership Program in Seattle, Wash. Attendance will be optional.
