Your Accounting Career Starts Today.

More than 100 of our current teammates sat in the seat you’re in today –

They were filled with questions, nerves, and excitement for what’s ahead. Since so many of us have been there before, Maner Costerisan continuously invests in our internship program to ensure you get the most you possibly can out of your experience.

Gather Real-world Accounting Experience at Maner Costerisan

Finding the right accounting internship can be tough. There are so many unknowns …  

Will you like the job? Will you like the people? What’s the pay going to be? How many hours will you be expected to work? What are the day-to-day responsibilities? Will you fit in?!  

In such a competitive industry, it can be overwhelming (and sometimes scary) to make such a big first decision. We get it.

We offer a variety of internships in our Audit, Accounting, and Tax departments that will bring you real-world, on-the-job experience you won’t get anywhere else. We help you understand what you like and don’t like about the day-to-day, because it’s important to know what they can’t teach you in school. Doing the work, shadowing at client meetings, getting your hands dirty – it’s all critical to ensuring you choose the career path that’s best for you.

Chart Your Own Career Path

We love accounting and all the opportunities it brings with it. That’s why we take pride in educating our interns about the many different career paths the industry offers – from the forensic side of things all the way to ensuring clients can pay their bills and staff. Accountants provide critical functions essential to industries of all kinds – from nonprofits to manufacturers to healthcare providers and everyone in between.   

The future is limitless and we’re here to ensure interns that choose Maner are given every opportunity possible to learn, grow and shine.

Accountants that Disrupt the Stereotype. 

We’re fun, social, smart, and are focused on doing great work for our clients.  

We’ve all heard the jokes – accountants are boring. They’re shy. And they sit behind their computer screens for hours on end, never to see the light of day.   

At Maner Costerisan, we disrupt the stereotype of your typical accountant. We’re friendly, sociable, and our firm invests in ensuring all our people – from interns to our partner group – feel included and that they belong. That’s why we host several fun events throughout the course of the year to get to know each other and just hang out.  

A handful of our team’s favorite annual festivities include: 

  • Tax Dinners (hosted during tax season) 
  • Post-Busy Season Party  
  • Summer Family Fun Event  
  • Employee Engagement Committee activities (pancake breakfasts, partner dunk tanks and corn hole tournaments, for example) 
  • Maner Cares Day of Impact  
  • Holiday Party

At Maner Costerisan, the Opportunities Speak for Themselves.

I appreciate that at Maner I could have an internship with only a few entry-level accounting classes. My internship affirmed that I was entering into the career I was meant to. Being client facing and given real responsibilities at a young age has allowed me to take ownership over my path.

Delaney Kirinovic, Associate, Audit

Maner has helped develop me in more ways than one. I have advanced in my foundational knowledge of accounting and built on that every day since I started working. Maner is very flexible and with my school schedule, helping me with whatever I need, and cheering me on from an academic standpoint.

Shelby Staley, Intern, Accounting & Outsourced

I learned about Maner at my campus career fair and met the nicest and sweetest people and they immediately wanted me to play on their kickball team. People who make the job more enjoyable by just being themselves is who I want to work with and that is Maner.
