Internship

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 formalized training schedule 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, including out-of-state travel when necessary. But it also includes group events such as an “etiquette lunch,” and networking workshops. There are opportunities to attend numerous social and community events; receive training, feedback and evaluation of work performed; our interns even blog about experiences and write/present papers on the entire program.
