Careers at Freed Maxick CPAs
When you join our team, you’ll benefit from rewarding positions, collaborating with talented people and enjoying a diverse career experience.
Building Your Accounting Career
Freed Maxick gives you the support to follow an advancing career path. Capable staff associates advance to positions with more responsibilities by demonstrating their professional skills on the job. As an entry-level accountant, you’ll work with an array of firm clients that represent various industries.
Advancement to mid-level positions comes with experience, and to more senior management positions as you develop skill sets and demonstrate your management capabilities and technical expertise.

If you become a Director, that means you’ll have demonstrated the ability to be a trusted business advisor, with high levels of professionalism, ethics and sound technical expertise. You’ll have proven yourself adept at sales and marketing, and the career development of staff.
