  • My internship with SEK has overall been very valuable and an excellent experience. The employees were all very friendly, patient, and always willing to answer any questions I had. This made learning how to do tax returns less intimidating, and even enjoyable. Their help not only came with the answer I was seeking, but also a smiling face that always made me feel welcomed and appreciated. The professional experience I was able to gain in the public accounting profession will be very valuable for my career and future. I would highly recommend doing an internship with SEK to anyone!

  • The internship at SEK has honestly been the best experience I could’ve asked for. Not only do you learn so much in a few short weeks, but you feel included. You feel like you are as much as an employee as everyone else in the firm. If there is ever a question you may have, everyone is there to help and work with you through it, no matter how busy they may be. I have learned far more than I anticipated and it has truly made me fall in love with my future career!

  • My internship at SEK has been an amazing experience. From the start, the staff have been available to answer any question, no matter how trivial or redundant. They are very patient and understanding of how difficult it can be to work in a professional setting for the first time. Along with the endless help you receive, you are also respected as a colleague. Lastly, SEK provides the valuable opportunity to work semi-independently on projects for actual clients that allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the field.

  • I learned so much from my time interning at SEK and met so many great people. I was taking my Tax course the same time I was interning, which really pulled what I was learning in class and applied it to the tax returns I was working on in the office. I would recommend this internship to any accounting major.
