Life of an Intern
“My favorite part of interning with Vrakas was that I was able to experience a wide variety of work, while working directly with the clients. Being able to work within multiples industries for both tax and audit helped me decide what direction I want to take my career.“
– Andrea Werner, UW- Whitewater Student
2017 Intern, Accepted full-time position starting September 2018
At Vrakas, the internship starts with one week of in-house training, to help familiarize you with our software programs and procedures. This first week of training is just a starting point, the rest of your training is done through hands-on experience while working on real client projects.
The internship includes both audit and tax work, in order to give you a better sense of what both areas are like outside of a classroom, and to discover where your interests and talents lie. You will also work in a variety of industries and will assist with various types of engagements including, audits, reviews, corporate tax returns, individual tax returns and estate tax returns. Interns perform the same level of work as our staff accountants, to provide for a quality experience.
During your time at Vrakas, our experienced team is available to assist when you need guidance. We have an open door policy and encourage questions to help you learn. It’s not just about completing projects, we want to make sure you understand the why behind the process.
Our goal at the end of the internship is to offer full-time positions to candidates who have grown and have proven their willingness to learn.
In addition to the work, we provide interns with a pleasant working environment that includes, time to socialize and get to know your co-workers. Also, because it is a busy time for our employees, the firm provide snacks, fruit, sandwich fixings and catered meals.
