We offer two paid programs:

  • A training program that prepares you for life in a dynamic CPA firm
  • Practical, on-the-job accounting, auditing and tax experience
  • Mentoring from seasoned professionals to ensure that you are staying on track
  • Working in a professional, friendly and challenging environment

  • Getting to know our dynamic firm and why W&G just might be the right fit for your career

Intern training:

Our internship orientation takes place "in house" and is moderated by shareholders and managers, as well as by other accounting staff. It takes place over the first week of the Wilkin & Guttenplan internship program. Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to our firm, departments and various services offered
  • Accounting software applications and their usage
  • Audit procedures and preparation of work papers
  • Financial statement preparation
  • Tax matters

In addition to your formal orientation, you will receive continual "on the job" training and feedback from the accounting staff members who will be supervising you. Someone will always be there for your questions, and the answers will be given in a friendly and supportive manner. You will also be assigned a "buddy", to enable you to begin developing a relationship with this person as a potential mentor, resource, etc. It's a key to our philosophy that "you are never just left on your own" at Wilkin & Guttenplan.


  • A declared accounting major
  • A college junior
  • A reliable mode of transportation
  • No experience necessary, just a strong desire to experience life in a CPA firm, to roll up your sleeves and be part of the team.
