INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Internship:

The internship is a full-time, paid position that provides a unique learning opportunity for students by exposing them to many aspects of a full-service accounting firm. The internship program begins in January, and the interns will experience the process through the filing deadline on April 15. Interns will be assigned a mentor and will work closely with all levels of our staff, including partners. We view our interns as important members of our team and they will have many responsibilities.

Responsibilities:

We typically seek Junior and Senior level students with an accounting major and the ability to adjust their schedules to work with us full time. This provides a better learning opportunity for the intern and more efficiency for our firm. Full time is defined as approximately 40 hours per week throughout the internship; however, there is flexibility to accommodate a light class schedule if necessary. Partial days on Saturday will be mandatory as busy season progresses. Opportunities for overtime will also be available based on the needs of the firm.

Requirements Our internship candidates are valued members of our firm and will be actively involved and viewed as professionals. As a firm, our entry-level associates are typically hired from our internship program. The internship provides an invaluable learning experience and letters of recommendation will be available for candidates who successfully complete the program. Please send resumes to recruiting@415group.com.

Intern Testimonials 2016

“I never felt like just an intern. From day one, I felt like part of the team and I think that was really helpful getting through busy season. Even with how busy everything gets, when I asked for help, everyone that I asked stopped what they were doing to help me work through what I was struggling with. That means so much as an intern.” - M.G., Kent State University
“The internship program broadened my perception of public accounting. … I enjoyed being treated as not just an intern but on an equal level as any other staff member. Participating in actual accounting work and knowing I was being counted on to complete returns on my own was motivating.” - M.F., University of Mount Union
“I would certainly recommend 415 Group as a superb place of employment. The firm is well respected, the staff is very accepting and the environment is quite positive.” - J.B., University of Cincinnati

Intern Testimonials 2015

“As a tax intern, I was able to work on a diverse amount of income tax returns. I love being able to do different things. Other firms don't give you the chance to do tax, audit and bookkeeping. To me, the most important aspect of 415 Group, compared to other firms, is everybody genuinely cares about each other. It makes coming to work easy and enjoyable.” - M.R., Kent State University
“I liked the idea of being at a smaller firm … you can get your busy season experience but also feel like you are wanted and not just another number. A place of this size allows you to work on different types of returns and do different aspects of public accounting like tax and auditing.” - C.D., The University of Akron
“This experience, even if nothing more comes out of this than my first internship, has given me the utmost respect for the professionals at 415 Group. I will always be grateful for the knowledge and growth that I gained here. The honesty, sincerity and courtesy that I have seen in the people here allow me to say to people that I truly love where I work.” - M.W., University of Mount Union
