Do you really want to know what a career in audit would be like?
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was the care and thought that went into the planning for a productive and engaging summer.


Downers

Nothing really. We had to a do a project that turned out to be a bit stressful, but in the end even that was a good experience "pressure" way to end our time.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would recommend asking questions about what skills would be beneficial to learn prior to becoming full time (e.g., Excel, review of assertations, etc).


Sample Interview Questions

Why are you interested in a career in public accounting?

What are some of the qualities that would make you successful in this field?

What do you expect of the day to day responsibilities of your job?


Advice to Management

Nothing that I can think of in this short time.

Dynamic Accounting Experience with Amazing Colleagues
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Why did you pick accounting?

Why are you interested in Moss Adams?


Advice to Management

Attempting to introduce more staff/seniors to the interns initially. We do a great job of meeting our buddy and career advisor, but there were numerous staff who walked by intern desks and didn't introduce themselves initially. Maybe a social type activity the first day to meet more people and that is solved!

Every now and then, we ran out of billable work (which wasn't too bad, because there was other stuff to do).

Learn about auditing by actually working on audits in the field
Spokane, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working on-site at the client was not only interesting but also shed light on what being an auditor is really like.


Downers

Because the summer is generally a bit slower time in public accounting, sometimes I had to ask around for work. In the long run however, this forced me to meet more people in the office which was very beneficial.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams is a great firm that truly cares about you and your career path. Their professionals are experts in the industries they serve. As an intern and entry level staff accountant you have to opportunity to work on a ton of different clients rather than just specializing on two or three.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time you were criticized for something? What was it and how did you handle that criticism?

What was the hardest course you took in college and why?

What was your favorite non-accounting course and why?
