Could someone explain what finance closing process is? I passed CPA and have audit experience but I don’t really understand how industry accounting cycle works :( What does it mean to close the books? Are they referring to 12/31 deadline? Do all JE have to be recorded within this date? How does one close it?

I'm currently doing my internship at Simon-Kucher (4 months), and love the job I do. However, the long working hours (it was 14.5 hours yesterday, for example) is killing me everyday and gives me no space to relax and improve myself, or even reading a book. Now, I got another internship offer, including a full time one, from P&G's Finance department. Though I'm not a fan of finance, it offers me decent working hours, a lower salary (but not much), and a nice career path. What do you think?
