If you’re looking for an internship to work exclusively on Operational and Sarbanes Oxley audits in an amusement park, using the same cloud audit program used by our national CPA firm, this is the one! Our Internal Audit internship will give you critical knowledge for your future career, daily exposure and reporting to all levels of our company management, and cause your future career interviewers to want to hear more about your work accomplishments here! To say it another way, this is NOT an internship where you’re just going to change light bulbs all summer long. We need our interns to do these objectives and more, because our interns actually become our staff auditors during the summer (the interns and our audit managers are the only staff working on our audits). If you want to learn more about this, we’d love to consider interviewing you (a full description is below)! And the best part is, we’re also very interested in Sophomores or above applying too!
Here’s a short description of a recent satisfied intern from the past (there’s also more when you read through the attached brochure)! “I am also so thankful the company embraced the interns in such a welcoming way and we never felt our work to be stereotypical busy work. I thought I would only deal with numbers, but to my surprise and pleasure, I was able to go out into the field and actually do audits myself each day! I came in everyday knowing I was making a valuable contribution to this business and felt incredibly fulfilled while doing it!”
Two summer interns are needed to fill highly visible audit staff positions at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA for a large, publicly held company, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (www.cedarfair.com). These positions offer the chance to acquire an exceptional amount of audit, accounting, and business experience, while working in a fun and professional environment!
NOTE: To apply for this internship, please submit you’re updated transcript and resume to Handshake. Also state your earliest possible starting work date when spring classes end, and the latest ending work date before fall classes, along with any vacations you have scheduled between those times. Please read through the attached brochure and if you have questions please contact Kenny Do at email@example.com.
Audit staff interns perform all of our summer audits used by our external CPA firm and sent to each park’s GM, under the direction and mentorship of a Corporate Internal Audit Manager. Assignments may include audits on controls over procedures used inside each park, Revenue, Cash Receipts, Accounting and Computer Systems, Payroll, Purchasing & Expenditures, Inventory, etc., plus other projects. After completing each audit, you’ll write a conclusion and any necessary recommendations for improvements to the controls and procedures.
No prior audit experience is necessary, as training and guidance will be provided during the internship. Candidates must be highly motivated and able to work professionally with and without supervision. Excellent communication skills are a plus, as you’ll interact with managers on a regular daily basis. Auditors should be willing to work approximately 40 hours per week over 5 days (with at least one weekend day), as daily schedules will vary. Candidates should be Accounting or Finance majors in their sophomore year or above now, have a G.P.A. of 3.00 or higher, and by preference complete two accounting courses prior to next summer’s internship (plus at least start or complete one before your interview in this fall).
Since you’ll be employed at one of California’s finest amusement parks, you’ll be able to ride the amusement and water park attractions for free. Knott’s Berry Farm does not have employee housing, so we’re looking for someone with a permanent residence or can live with relatives/friends within a 30 mile commute from Knott’s Berry Farm.
The same Internal Audit internships are also available at other Cedar Fair amusement parks in Santa Clara, CA, New Braunfels, TX, Galveston, TX, Charlotte, NC, Minneapolis (Shakopee), MN, Doswell, VA, Allentown, PA, Muskegon, MI, Kansas City, MO, and Toronto, Canada. If interested in those parks and have a place to live near there, let us know.
