Fall 2015 Campus Recruiting

We recruit at many 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. 

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. The 2015 Campus Recruiting Schedule will be published in the Summer of 2015. 

Peterson Sullivan proudly partners with the following universities for recruiting purposes:

  • Washington State University
  • Gonzaga University
  • Pacific Lutheran University
  • University of Washington Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma
  • Western Washington University
  • Seattle University
  • Seattle Pacific University

If you attend any of these universities, you will have the opportunity to submit your application through the Career Center website at your school i the Fall. If you attend any other university, or have recently graduated with enough credits to sit for the CPA exam and would like to be considered for Associate or Intern level positions, you can apply via our website in the Fall.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in learning more about our firm!
