2017 Accounting Internships

Are you interested in an internship in accounting? From cash flow to audit sampling and other accounting terms, if you are interested in a career in this lucrative industry it is time to move beyond the theoretical and find an accounting internship.

The most sought after accounting internships are with the big four firms. These 4 firms are PwC (Price Waterhouse Coopers), Ernst and Young, KPMG, and Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Getting an accounting internship at one of these four firms is not an easy task--with the prestige, brand name, and large internship salaries they offer, these firms attract the best students from around the world.

However, whether you prefer working in a smaller office environment, or are trying to get ahead by doing multiple internships, finding an internship at a boutique accounting firm, small business, or NFP can be an exceptional idea. Many of these smaller companies don’t have an in-house financial expert so as an accounting intern you will get to take on all kinds of responsibilities, from managing bank accounts, to creating month-ends. Nothing will help you stand out more at a future accounting internship or job interview than being able to speak to real experience using QuickBooks and managing accounts.

Then beyond small business opportunities there are plenty of medium to larger size firms that offer a variety of different internships in accounting with a range of cultures and compensation packages.
