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

Note: If you decide to pursue this opportunity as a credit-bearing internship, you will need to get approval from your academic department prior to the start of the academic semester in which you wish to register for the internship. 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.
