  • Being part of a collaborative team?

  • Learning continuously from leaders you respect?

  • Are a fast learner and self-starter who pays attention to details, contributes intelligently to projects, and asks for help when needed;

  • Are willing to give back to the community when the opportunity presents itself; and

  • Acknowledge that hard work and long hours are a known facet of a public accounting career but believe that solving problems and giving strategic business recommendations make it all worth it.
