Internships

If you’re an accounting student, you know about “Busy Season.” From January to April each year, we offer part-time and full-time tax and audit internships that will give you a taste of what it’s like to work in one of the best accounting firms in the Midwest. Designed for students in their senior year, this isn’t a fetch-coffee-and-donuts internship, it’s a chance to do real work with real professionals and clients during the most critical time of the year.

Even better – most of our first-year associates were once interns with Anders. This is a valuable career opportunity that will introduce you to what it’s like to work here – and give you a chance to do so if it’s a good fit.

In the tax internship, you’ll learn how to:

  • Prepare trust and individual income tax returns
  • Analyze tax notices and draft responses
  • Assist in tax planning and prepare projections
  • Utilize project management software and perform tax research

In the audit internship, you’ll learn how to:

  • Plan and conduct audits of client financial statements
  • Assist with audit methodology and risk assessments
  • Develop relationships with client companies
  • Prepare detailed reports and examine records

In the outsourced accounting internship, you’ll learn how to:

  • Prepare bank reconciliations, financial statements, and general ledger journal entries
  • Create balance sheet schedules in Excel (i.e. prepaids and accruals)
  • Assist in performing the accounts payable role for our clients
  • Work diligently in various accounting software
