The Accounting Internship program is a ten-week program designed to prepare highly talented Accounting students for a career in corporate accounting. The program offers hands-on training in a variety of accounting disciplines. Students successfully completing an internship may be considered for our Accounting Rotational Business Associate (ARBA) program which has been an integral part of CNA for over 30 years. Graduates of the ARBA program hold a variety of positions throughout the organization, including numerous senior leadership roles.
Internships are available in areas such as:
Enterprise Risk Management
Each one of the assignments will be an integral part of that area’s function and activities. The employee will report to an experienced manager and work in a team of other CNA Finance staff. CNA has an established ARBA Program Committee that will oversee development and set expectations for and requirements of the interns. Every intern will gain valuable skills, competencies, and knowledge within the corporate accounting world.
In addition to the on-the-job training received during assignment, each intern will receive classroom training specifically developed for the program on insurance accounting and reporting and CNA’s specific accounting and reporting methodologies.
