Summer Internship Experience: This summer I had a 10-week long internship with Principal Financial Group, rotating between Corporate Accounting and Information Services. In Corporate Accounting, I assisted with the financial reporting process and numerous projects, including merging global entities and internal audit procedures. In Information Services, I learned Agile methodology and led a project to improve service ticket resolution. The rotation experiences, networking, and additional intern opportunities have been valuable and rewarding.
