Cohen & Company’s robust, paid internship program immerses students into the profession, firm and region to help them become well-rounded professionals. Our formal internship program is offered twice a year, spring semester and summer semester. Our real-world approach centers around treating interns as staff members and offers the tools, training and experience to achieve rapid professional growth from the beginning. In fact, many of our partners and management team members started with us as interns. Below briefly outlines what you can expect.
New Hire Orientation
Orientation for interns and entry-level accountants begins with a week-long training schedule in our Cleveland office to learn about our software and processes, receive accounting-specific training, and hear from key leadership on their insights into the firm and the profession.
Assignments, Events, and Projects
The primary purpose of our onboarding process is to offer experience via tax, audit or advisory projects. This often includes conducting fieldwork onsite at the client with your engagement teams, working through a tax return, and creating deliverables to present to clients. We also provide every intern with a go-to mentor, regular feedback and evaluation of works preformed, and constant interaction with the management team. But our internship also includes social events and fun networking opportunities such as client tours, intramural sport teams like soccer, softball and volleyball, and happy hours to unwind at the end of the day. Our interns even blog about their experiences and write/present papers on the entire program.
