Do you need an Accounting Internship to get a job in Accountancy?


Hi guys. How many of you who got jobs at accountancy firms had done work experience of internships/placements when you made your applications? Do you think trainee/graduate accountants need internships or is this more for investment banking and law?

Interested to hear your thoughts!



not for accounting. more favourable in IB circles


Is it possible to get internships in accountancy - or not? I wouldn’t mind giving it a go, to find out what working life is like, if nothing else!


Chups, yes it is - usually over the summer months. All the big four offer them, as do many other firms such as Grant Thornton as I applied for one. I’m pretty sure PwC are recruiting now, so apply ASAP.


its good to get, but not essential by any means.
