    JOB SUMMARY

    Lumen's internship program is a 10 week, fast-paced and exciting opportunity to gain professional experience within your field of study and career interest. Interns within the Finance Organization will be part of an accelerated learning experience, to challenge skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills while working on active Lumen work projects. The Accounts Payable department processes checks to pay vendor invoices or to pay customers requiring a refund. If these checks are not cashed within a year, the check is transferred to the Unclaimed Property department for further processing.

    Unclaimed Property department researches, monitors, reports, and remits ("escheats") funds to the state and local authorities for both uncashed checks and unidentified deposits. This department also assists outside contractors as they respond to audits by state and local authorities. The internship will take place in Monroe, LA. In addition, interns will connect to our company culture through community outreach projects, engage with our employee resource groups and be able to develop their professional skills and business acumen through frequent exposure to senior leadership, cutting-edge technology, groundbreaking projects, and a network of mentors and fellow interns.
