Interns are guided by multiple in-charge accountants who brief him/her in advance on the assignments, suggest expeditious methods, answer questions, decide on remedies when difficulties are encountered, and review his/her progress periodically. Interns generally do not deal directly with client personnel without guidance and supervision by the In-charge accountant.

This is a paid internship. Internships normally run Mid-January through April 15 with the opportunity to join our team full time. This is discretionary based upon available work load and successful performance.
