What is Warren Averett looking for in an intern or new associate?
We believe that our culture is one thing that sets us apart from most other public accounting firms and we work hard to protect it. As such, we are looking for people that offer more than just the ability to fulfill a job description. Our new interns and associates help make our team better and our culture stronger. We’re looking for A+ talent that is entrepreneurial and has a passion for excellence. When is the best time to intern? A college student typically interns the spring semester of their senior year How long do internships last? The duration of our internships are flexible but traditionally, our spring internships last from January-April.
What is a typical day of an internship?
A typical day of an internship is very similar to a typical day of a full-time staff in that department. If you are a tax intern you will start preparing more simpler tax returns and work your way up to more complex once you feel comfortable. The audit internship is similar except for the fact that instead of tax returns, you will start with more simpler parts of the audit (for example, cash) and move to more difficult parts when ready. The audit interns are mainly in the client office with their team whereas the tax interns are in the Warren Averett office for their internship. We want the internship to simulate what life is like as a full-time staff so you get the most out of it.
Do you offer summer internships?
In the past, we have not offered summer internships due to the seasonal nature of public accounting. However, the profession is constantly changing and the interest for summer internships has increased. Therefore, we are exploring the idea of implementing more summer opportunities. As always, every situation is evaluated individually.
What are administrative internships?
The duties of an administrative internship included document processing, e-filing, scanning, errands, etc. These internships can be awarded to younger college and even high school students, since accounting understanding is not required.
If I did not intern, can I still be considered for full-time opportunities?
Yes! Although internships are a great opportunity to learn about the firm and life in public accounting, there is still a great need for additional hires.
