The Congressional Budget Office is currently accepting applications for a Financial Specialist/Accounting Intern. At a minimum, candidates must have completed their second year of an undergraduate program or be in a graduate program and must have a major in business, accounting, or a related field.

CBO's Office of Financial Management, which consists of four professional staff members, seeks an intern with a strong work ethic to assist in the office's work for a 10-week period in the summer of 2017.
