As my final week interning at T&T comes to a close, I’m confident in saying that this has been an incredibly rewarding experience and I’m very happy to have worked here. This internship allows you to gain experience working within your team on various projects, and immerses you into the culture of T&T as if you were already a full-time employee. In doing so, you’re able to understand what it’s like to work in the field of public accounting, and really gain a comprehensive understanding of T&T’s mission and how it operates on day-to-day basis. Being given the opportunity to work for actual clients allows interns to apply the concepts and skills they’ve acquired during their undergraduate studies in a practical and meaningful way.
T&T also provides its interns with plenty of opportunities to interact with and get to know each other, as well as the other employees at the firm. We were able to go to a Nationals game, had after-work happy hours, and also had an ice cream social one week. Being able to hang out with the other interns and employees outside of work made the entire experience working here a lot more fun. I can’t believe eight weeks have already come and gone, and I’m very grateful for having had the opportunity to work at T&T!
