Build your skills through an internship

SAO’s paid internships give you a chance to learn by working alongside professionals. Audit interns have opportunities to provide support for large and small audits. As interns grow their skills, they take on assignments with increased complexity and responsibility.

We look for students who have:

  • completed their sophomore year
  • strong computer skills
  • strong written and verbal communications skills
  • completed some accounting course work
