Qualified candidates should have 2-4 years of employee benefits experience, including qualified plans, health and welfare plans, and executive compensation. Excellent academic credentials are strongly preferred and experience at a large firm supporting corporate groups in transactions is a plus. Please submit cover letter, resume and transcript.
