Fall 2014 Campus Recruiting

We recruit at many Washington colleges and universities by participating in a number of activities and events such as Beta Alpha Psi meetings and recognition dinners, on-campus office hours, alumni mentoring programs, career fairs, informal in-office tours, accounting class guest speaking, and much more!

In the Fall, our annual recruiting cycle begins, and we conduct on-campus interviews arranged through each school's career center for our Associate and Intern positions. In late October, we  usually host two "call back" days for second and final round interviews with selected candidates. The call back days for Peterson Sullivan this year are October 28th and October 30th.

This recruiting season we are looking to increase the long-term capacity of our audit and tax departments, and we will be recruiting for Associate and Intern level positions. These positions will have start dates in January, July, or October 2015.
