HBK Internship Program
At HBK CPAs & Consultants, the firm’s internship program is designed to provide a valuable and challenging “hands-on” learning experience, to develop an understanding of the firm, the public accounting profession and to enhance the intern’s formal education.
Interns will receive training on federal and state tax preparation, tax research, tax laws, and HBK software. Interns will be expected to contribute to the firm by providing timely and high quality work products. Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with all levels of HBK team members, including Principals in a professional, friendly and challenging environment and will have many of the same responsibilities as a part-time, first-year associate.
The internship positions are typically full-time, however HBK understands that students may need to attend classes during their internship and will provide a flexible schedule if necessary. HBK offers internships to junior and senior accounting majors with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
Upon successful completion of the internship, students may be presented with a verbal offer for a second internship (juniors), or with a full-time offer of employment (seniors) followed by a formal Written offer letter.
