What a wonderful internship experience

From the moment I accepted a position to intern at Cohen & Company, I knew I had made a great decision. From traveling to Cleveland for training, to wrapping up the end of my internship, I have been treated like a full time staff accountant. I have been lucky to be surrounded by the most friendly and helpful people.

During my time so far as an IIS tax intern, I have completed tax returns for partners involved in hedge funds, mutual funds and crypto funds. Working with these sophisticated funds shows that Cohen & Company truly has trust in its interns to get the job done. While mistakes may happen from time to time, it is important to use them as a learning lesson and to always ask questions. Never be ashamed to ask for help. Just make a list of questions and bring them to the engagement manager’s attention without occupying too much of their time.

I highly recommend interning at Cohen & Company. This summer Internship has been a great experience for me. As my internship comes to an end, I have realized that it was everything I was looking for and more in an accounting firm. I am extremely happy and I was able to take advantage of this opportunity to work for a great company.
