Crowe Horwath LLP (www.crowehorwath.com) is one of the largest public accounting and consulting firms in the United States. Under its core purpose of "Building Value with Values®," Crowe uses its deep industry expertise to provide audit services to public and private entities while also helping clients reach their goals with tax, advisory, risk and performance services. Crowe and its subsidiaries have offices coast to coast with more than 3,000 personnel. The firm is recognized by many organizations as one of the country's best places to work. Crowe serves clients worldwide as an independent member of Crowe Horwath International, one of the largest global accounting networks in the world, consisting of more than 150 independent accounting and advisory services firms in more than 100 countries around the world.

Crowe offers the Success-Opportunities-Achievement-Results (SOAR) internship program to top-achieving students at univerities across the U.S. The firm offers a summer and winter/spring program, which both run approximately 10 weeks, depending on the specific business unit (BU). SOAR begins with firm and BU orientation and provides a well-rounded overview of Crowe's clients, work initiatives, culture, people and values. The interns are aligned to existing project teams to experience real industry work and direct client engagements. Interns have the opportunity to work closely with Crowe leaders at all levels and have immediate access to partners.They participate in information sessions led by firm leaders and enjoy various networking and team-building opportunities.

Due to the nature of accounting and consulting firm busy seasons, there are a couple differences between the summer and winter/spring programs. Summer interns participate in "SOAR Serves," a day of community service in which all interns across the firm volunteer at various local nonprofit organizations. Additionally, summer interns work in teams for an end-of-internship project to create a newsletter highlighting client engagements and other experiences during their time at Crowe. Winter/spring interns have the opportunity to experience an audit and tax busy season. Their projects have an increased focus on client work as they learn about and support the deadline processes to prepare for a full-time position in the role.

To further ensure the intern's development and experience, all interns have a performance manager and peer liaison to provide feedback and support throughout the program. SOAR provides an environment where students can build strong skills in the workplace and have real hands-on experience. Everyone at Crowe helps make SOAR a positive experience by providing guidance and answering students' questions throughout the internship. The internship program is the number one pipeline for full-time hires and Crowe experiences about a 90 percent acceptance rate. It is standard for our former interns to receive a starting bonus if they are offered and accept a full-time position with the firm.
