Consider a Melton & Melton Internship
Looking for real world experience? Consider an Internship
The Melton & Melton internship program provides undergraduate and graduate accounting students with practical, on-the-job experience, as well as an opportunity to assess their interest in a career path with our firm. Our comprehensive internship program is designed to prepare students for a full-time career upon completion—our potential goal is a permanent hire at the end of the internship.
We value our interns highly and treat them no differently than the rest of our staff; that means that all your assignments will be real-world work. You will also receive the same extensive training as our full-time staff.
“After my internship, I knew Melton & Melton was the place I wanted to start and grow my career. During my internship, I not only had the opportunity to work on a variety of client engagements and explore my interests in both the tax and audit departments, but I also received mentorship from everyone, ranging from associates to partners. This mentorship experience solidified the fact that my future co-workers really valued my growth as they took the time to ensure I understood the concepts behind what I was doing. In addition, I really appreciate the fact that Melton & Melton has diversity in every level of the firm, and not simply the entry levels, since I personally value seeing people who look like me in leadership positions.”

What to Expect
We offer internships in either our tax or audit department; each internship generally lasts 16 weeks. The idea is for you to have the chance to test us out, and to test out public accounting, as well. We maintain a high retention rate of interns who return to work full-time – typically two out of three. We also encourage all new full-time hires to pass the CPA exam before beginning work or within the first two years on staff. Beyond that, the promotion track to supervisor, manager, senior manager and partner could be in your future!
We recruit on campus at over 16 schools, and remotely at over 14. Typically, we recruit a year to a year-and-a-half in advance, so be sure to start planning for your internship early. Feel free to come see us on campus and meet our representatives. We love talking with students to help you understand what life is like in a public accounting firm and to help you determine if we will be a good fit for your career goals.
