Interns perform the same level of work as our associates, to provide for a quality experience.

During this busy time of year, our employees are provided with snacks, fruit, sandwich fixings, and catered meals to help fuel those who are working during our accounting compliance season (Prime Time).

The paid internship takes place during the spring semester and lasts approximately 14 weeks (beginning of January to April 15).

From Big 4 to Vrakas

“As an experienced hire, I was attracted to Vrakas by the autonomy I’ve been given to make a meaningful impact on the direction of our business and our culture.  Vrakas has a sincere people-first culture that encourages our people to lean into their strengths as they shape their career experience within the firm.  I also get a lot of energy from the impact we have on our clients from our hands-on service model.  I’m thrilled to be part of the leadership group as we continue to adapt to changes in our profession while building on our strong culture!
