Internship Overview:
The Georgia-Pacific Accounting Internship is a 10 week paid summer internship designed to provide meaningful real-work experience. Interns will be placed with one of our accounting teams in a manufacturing location, likely along the West Coast.  Planned career networking events and focused mentoring prepare our interns for a career within the Georgia-Pacific financial groups, either in one of our manufacturing locations across the United States or in our Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

At Georgia-Pacific, we utilize behavior based interviewing. If you are not familiar with this interviewing method, I would suggest researching the topic in some detail before our conversation. The following website will assist you in understanding behavior based interviewing:  http://jobsearch.about.com/cs/interviews/a/behavioral.htm

It is also a good practice, when preparing for an interview, to learn more  about Georgia-Pacific and Koch Industries. The following websites will provide a basis for learning about Georgia-Pacific and the products that we produce as well as Koch Industries.

Scholarships:
1.  The Moss Adams Foundation will again be awarding Diversity Scholarships to candidates that meet the eligibility requirements. This scholarship targets sophomores/juniors or those that will be going through Fall 2016 recruiting to secure a summer internship. I will make mention of this to Jamie so it filters through BAP as well, but not sure that is the right venue for this level of student.  We are not posting directly on campus for this but students can find the application on our Careers website under Student Events.  I have been trying to connect with Brooks Peacock about getting time in his 200-level classes. See attached flyer for more details. Our Oregon region has 2  $2,500 scholarships to award.

Mentoring Program:
Below is a link to a coaching and mentoring program that the Oregon Soc. of CPAs established a few years ago.    If the accounting students know about the program, they could apply to participate.  https://www.orcpa.org/career_zone/resource/64-oscpa_coaching_program/
