  • Internship Opportunities
  • Internship Program

    Dates of intern program Late January through April 15

    Compensation $20/hour (There will be no compensation for vacation, health or any other employee benefits as a temporary or seasonal employee.)

    Work Hour Expectation 25 to 40 hours per week; more than 40 hours per week optional.  Position requires working through Spring break.

    Post-internship Hiring Many of our interns are offered a full-time position as an Associate with our firm after completion of the internship and graduation with a four-year accounting degree.

    Intern Requirements Individuals at this level normally have a basic understanding of accounting, bookkeeping or tax preparation, but may not have obtained a four-year college degree that includes a significant concentration of accounting or tax courses.  Interns are expected to:

    • Must have a GPA of 3.30 or higher
    • Become familiar with the firm’s policies and procedures
