As has been the trend in recent years, retailers rush the seasons, so we’re already hearing about “Back to School” sales in the middle of July!

While that may leave many scratching their heads, Freed Maxick knows it’s not too soon to starting thinking about Back to School and our Robust Recruiting Season.  In fact, information and our application for Summer 2014 Internships will be posted on our website in just one week!

Our MAX Program – The Mentored Accounting Experience – is an intense six-week program which allows our interns to rotate through our various departments and service areas.  This year, they worked in Audit, Tax, Enterprise Advisory Services, Risk Management, Marketing and even squeezed in some volunteer time.  Our 2013 interns came from St. Bonaventure University, Niagara University, Canisius College, St. John Fisher College, Florida State, SUNY Fredonia and University at Albany.

Ryan from Bonaventure said “The MAX internship program has been the most valuable work experience that I have had, as I am beginning my career in public accounting. I was able to apply a great deal of what I learned in school to the business environment, and I vastly expanded my knowledge base through working in and being exposed to the various departments that Freed has to offer.”

On behalf of the Directors, we’d like to thank this year’s group – Ryan, Natalie, Alex, Keon, Lauren, Jonathan, Erika, Adam, Anthony, Jacob and Kristi for spending some time with us this summer.  We hope you’ve had a great experience!

Applications for the 2014 program will be due September 30, 2013, and interviews will take place in October.  We look forward to meeting next year’s MAX Program candidates!
