WithumSmith+Brown, PC is a regional public accounting firm
headquartered in Princeton, NJ. We have over 450 employees in 6
offices throughout NJ, as well as offices in New York, Colorado,
Philadelphia, Orlando, and Silver Spring, Maryland.
The WithumSmith+Brown (WS+B) Tax Season Internship is approximately
3 months, during the tax season period of January through April.
The internships are offered at most of our offices and each office
usually hires interns from the colleges/universities that are
closest to their respective offices. Interns are hired through
on-campus recruiting/interviewing programs.
What is nice about our intern program, is that these students
actually do hands-on work with tax returns. Unlike some other
accounting firms who basically just have them scanning and copying,
our students are doing actual work. We usually require that they
work at least 20 hours per week, however we are flexible and will
work around their school schedules.
Duties may include, but are not limited to, assisting our other
accounting professionals in performing accounting, auditing and/or
tax functions for our diverse client base. The work environment is
a professional office setting, however the Interns may also get the
opportunity to go out to one our clients so there is a possibility
that they may experience other types of work environments. All
interns are paid twice per month. The rate of pay ranges from $20 -
$21 per hour depending upon whether they are a returning intern or
not. If the student can also get college credit for the internship,
we are more than happy to prepare the paperwork necessary for them
to attain it. Also, if they use their car on firm business they get
mileage reimbursement, as well as reimbursement for any other
expenses they incur on behalf of the Firm.
During tax season we provide meals to our staff on late nights and
Saturdays. Interns are expected to eat if they are here! We also
provide free beverages as well as bagels once a week. All Interns
receive a gift at the end of tax season, just as all of our
employees do. Our interns are fully integrated as part of the Firm
and also will participate in any firm activities that may occur
while they are here.
