Frequently Asked Questions About Blue

Have questions about what to expect when working at Blue? Check out our FAQs.

How do I apply to the internship program?

To apply for the internship program, submit your resume via Handshake or the Internship job opening on the application page.

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. 

How often does an internship lead to a full-time offer?

Overall, our goal at Blue is to help you grow! The purpose of our internship program is to provide students with a meaningful internship experience in public accounting that will lead to the start of their career.

Can I intern while I am taking classes like a part-time position?

Yes. At Blue, we provide flexibility surrounding your school schedule. We understand academics are the foundation of your future within public accounting.

What is the Summer Leadership Program all about?

It’s a great opportunity to make connections, learn more, and launch your career in public accounting. Jumpstart Summer Leadership Event is designed to give you a taste of the world of public accounting and financial consulting and help you prepare for a successful career. As a participant, you will expand on your leadership skills through networking, fun activities, and informational presentations. You will also gain insight into our company culture.

Can I rotate through tax and audit during an internship?
