Countless networking and shadow opportunities

We were provided with not only a career coach but were paired with an associate with at least one year of experience for any questions and advice as well as a partner in our line of service. Having three people already to network with when entering the firm was amazing.

Downers

I personally only worked on one engagement for the entirety of my internship, which was nice because I got to complete an entire quarter's worth of work, but it would have also been nice to be on at least two very different clients so that I could get an idea for an industry I would like to work in in the future.

Advice to Potential Interns

The number one thing I can say is to pay attention to the people! I know it's the typical answer, but in the public accounting field it is very true. I know I chose the right firm because I have been to two of the offices so far and the people were consistent across the U.S. as far as their relationship building goes, and that was important to me when choosing a firm!

Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time where you made a mistake and describe the steps you took to address/fix it.

Advice to Management

Speaking from an intern perspective, I would advise management to encourage the senior associates in charge of interns to really provide upfront coaching when the intern arrives. Sometimes the interns feel as if they aren't given enough direction to complete a task, and while I wholeheartedly agree that the point is for us to become familiar with using our resources and asking questions, it would be more efficient for the engagement teams to fully explain the task at hand and ensure the intern knows what is going on.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Exciting new learning opportunities, networking opportunities, and full-time job opportunities.
