Clark Schaefer Hacket’s Internship Program Sets You Up For Success

You’re looking for a real-world, hands-on internship experience where you learn by doing. You also want to serve a variety of clients and industries, and get feedback on your work to help you improve. And you want to feel valuable and valued from the first day. We’ve got all that – and more – at Clark Schaefer Hackett.

So, What Will You Be Doing?

As a CSH intern, you’ll be in a full-time, paid position, treated as if you are in a Staff I role, so you will get the actual experience of what it’s like to begin your career here.

Depending on which track you choose – audit or tax – you’ll perform audits, reviews and compilations of financial statements, or work on client tax returns.

A Unique Program

Your Clark Schaefer Hackett experience will be unlike any other public accounting internship. We’ve structured a program that supports your growth as a professional – not just as an accountant. It includes personal development, leadership development and technical training.

At our firm, interns have more opportunity for direct client experience. You’ll be part of a team that advises business owners, presidents, and CFOs, so your work will make a significant impact.

Success, Right Out Of the Gate

To start your internship, you get two full weeks of instruction before you get to your desk. During this onboarding, one week of training will be specific to tax or audit, including the industry’s leading accounting systems and software. The other week will include an introduction to CSH culture, values, policies and processes.

For the duration of your internship, you’ll be paired with a CSH Buddy – likely a Staff I associate – who will be able to answer questions and help you navigate the firm. In short, you’re given what you need from the start, so you’re learning and contributing every day.
