We want our interns to see and come to appreciate the entire process, from start to finish. They get to jump in and tackle tough challenges and get real-world experience. This includes meeting and working with clients directly, understanding their needs and perspectives firsthand. This way our interns learn faster, have the opportunity to develop a more comprehensive skillset and gain a thorough understanding of what it's truly like to have a career at an accounting firm.
