Audit Associate Intern


Apply your accounting lectures to the real world while boosting your career skills and networking opportunities with a paid auditing internship at TKW next Fall!

We are looking for a junior or senior accounting major to help us during our governmental busy season from August-December 2022.  If you have 20-40 hours a week to devote to our audit department, ideally in our office to get the most from this experience, but at least through a hybrid of in-person and remote work, we'd love to talk to you!

Don't worry if you haven't audited before!  Previous auditing experience is not required.  You will receive mentoring and direct supervision from our audit professionals.  While no two days will be alike, you will have the opportunity to work on multiple clients, including cities, fire districts and school districts, and learn from everyone in our department.  


You will:
  • Receive training to become familiar with our accounting software and methodology;

  • Assist us with completing various sections of the files;

  • Search for unrecorded liabilities;

  • Help us compile information, reports, memos, and confirmations; and

  • Get familiar with review comments.

Do you have what it takes?  You may be who we are looking for if you:
  • Are eager to learn by listening, asking questions and taking direction well;

  • Can stay positive in uncertainty - you "go with the flow" in unfamiliar situations;

  • Are able to balance between working independently and asking for clarification to avoid wasting time when you don't understand something;

  • Pay excellent attention to detail; and

  • Have high levels of customer service, time management, and organizational skills to work well under deadlines.

  • Are available to travel within the Portland metro area at times.  Some in-person fieldwork may be required for certain clients.
