Internship Program

Receive the FULL public accounting experience.

Our internships offer experience in both audit and tax, and last for the duration of one busy season (January to April for tax, and January to June for audit). Interns can expect to receive the full public accounting experience by working on the frontlines, side-by-side with senior staff.

I fell into the culture here and now I love it.

All of our interns start working in January at Wisconsin Dells, WI, where we hold our annual two-day interactive firm training. (Don’t worry, your meals, mileage and lodging are all on the firm!) At this training you can expect to learn our firm policies and procedures, culture, software and workflows, go through practice reviews, and more. All of our interns are required to attend in order to get the most out of their internship experience.
