Why should I intern at Blue instead of a Big 4 firm?
As a Blue & Co. intern, you can expect to contribute to the success of our team right away. Due to the small to mid-size feel, you will have a meaningful experience as you participate with our client service teams, working on the same tasks as a new staff accountant. You are introduced to many real-life settings and have the opportunity of working alongside tenured professionals. They continually check in to make sure you understand the why behind what we are doing for our clients. You will be mentored and receive timely feedback. Our interns learn and grow from the collaborative relationships they form with coworkers, our leadership teams, and client business owners.
