Our recruitment process for associate and internship-level opportunities occurs during the fall recruitment cycle.  We conduct on-campus interviews arranged through each campus’ career center in September and October.  If you attend a school or university we do not partner with, your application can be submitted directly through our website.  In early November, we host a “Call Back” day for second and final round interviews with selected candidates.  We also host a number of activities throughout the year as an opportunity for candidates to connect with our professionals and learn more about The PS Way.  You are encouraged to check in with our recruitment team throughout the year for more information about upcoming events.

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

Central Washington University, Gonzaga University, Pacific Lutheran University, Seattle University, Seattle Pacific University, University of Montana, University of Washington – Seattle, University of Washington – Bothell, University of Washington – Tacoma, Washington State University, Western Washington University, and Whitworth University.

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, please contact Sarah Baltzell, Chief Human Resources Officer.
