The busy season internship at SS&G is a full-time internship
opportunity where students work approximately 55-60 hours per week.
While students are not prohibited from taking classes during the
internship, it is strongly recommended that students either take
the semester off or take no more than one college course.
In order to be considered for an internship, students should be an
accounting major in their junior or senior year of college or
pursuing a masters degree; SS&G will consider recent graduates
for internship opportunities as well. It is highly recommended that
students have taken at least one course in their university's
accountancy intermediate series; completing a course in tax and/or
audit is also preferred. Students should also have a 3.0 GPA or
higher to be considered for the internship.
While SS&G looks at a student's coursework and GPA as part of
the internship recruitment process, these are not the only factors
taken into consideration when making hiring decisions. The firm
also looks for students with experience balancing a busy schedule
by either working or holding an on-campus leadership position while
taking class. These types of activities require students to be good
at multi-tasking, time management, communication, and working with
others, all qualities that are important to SS&G.
Since SS&G prides itself on offering interns the same type of
work experience as a first year associate, the firm also relies on
interns as much as full-time staff. Not only is it important for
interns to possess a good work ethic, but it is also essential for
interns to want to learn as much as possible during the internship
