Sometimes the search for an internship can feel like you are climbing a mountain. The professionals at Larson & Company are experienced trail guides and can lead you to the next step in your career. We offer hands-on career experience from real client work, giving you an overview of the entire tax return process. At Larson & Company, we believe in your potential and can help you reach new heights by providing an integrated internship experience. If you’re ready to jump in and become a genuine part of an extraordinary tax team, join us for more personalized training, an independent work environment, and the “Expectation Agreement” plan you won’t find in any other Utah CPA firm. But don’t take our word for it, here are some thoughts from our past interns who are now full-time employees:

I learned a lot during my internship. I learned what to expect as a tax accountant at a firm. The great part of my internship was being able to touch nearly every type of tax return to become well rounded in all aspects. Having this internship built my confidence in my career choice. (BillieJane, Intern 2018)

“My internship with Larson was a great experience. I was very pleased with the time I had face-to-face with the partners to learn from them. I also loved how I was exposed to a variety of tax returns and projects as an intern. Additionally, I enjoyed occasionally working directly with clients. I think my internship with Larson was a unique and great opportunity.” (Jason, Intern 2015)

“I had a wonderful experience as an intern at Larson & Company. I loved that I was given the opportunity to work on any and all types of tax returns, I wasn’t restricted because I was inexperienced. I was trusted with independence to get my work done, but any question I had was answered and I always felt supported. My internship gave me a much better vision of a CPA firm, how it functions, and what my role as a tax accountant would be.” (Julie, Intern 2014)
