Job Description

Reingold, a social impact marketing firm in Alexandria, Virginia, is looking to hire an accounting intern for the upcoming semester (early August through mid-December). This full- or part-time, paid intern will help our busy finance department support 200-plus consultants, designers, and technologists for all their various billing needs.

We're seeking a detail-oriented, organized multitasker who loves learning new skills, is steadfast in staying flexible, and enjoys a fast-paced environment. Our ideal candidate will feel comfortable processing large volumes of data and will excel in resolving accounting discrepancies.

You can expect the following tasks on your ongoing to-do list:

* Review vendor invoices and employee reimbursement requests and input them into our accounting system.
* Ensure payment authorization and proper coding, and package checks in a timely manner.
* Reconcile monthly statements for our corporate cards (collect receipts, cross-check with transaction descriptions, assign general ledger and contract-specific codes).
* Maintain accurate records of vendor invoices and supporting documentation (remittance addresses, tax information).
* Follow up with vendors and staff on payment status, invoice documentation and authorization, and other issues related to billing.
* Maintain working papers for general ledger accounts, and assist with the monthly close.
* Perform other administrative and ad hoc tasks.

This role is a good fit for someone with the following qualifications and skills:

* Exceptional attention to detail
* Evidence of strong organizational and time management skills
* Excellent written and verbal communications skills (and we mean excellent)
* Understanding of GAAP standards
* Basic proficiency in Microsoft Excel and Word
* Status as an undergraduate student or as a recent graduate in finance, accounting, or a related field
* Availability to work at least 2 workdays a week in our Alexandria office (full-time preferred)
* Capacity to work at least 15 hours a week Monday through Friday (40 hours preferred)
