Attend summer programs. If you missed the opportunity last summer to participate in our Step Forward event, apply now to help you prepare for the fall recruiting season
This is a big year for you! Attend recruiting events and if you haven’t already, apply for a summer internship. If you are pursuing a master’s degree after completing your bachelor’s, you should recruit for internships in the winter/spring.
If you have a summer internship lined up, congratulations! If you’re still in pursuit of one, continue recruiting but start thinking about an alternate plan for the summer. Be mindful of the CPA unit requirements so you can course-correct if needed.
Get the most out of your HCVT summer internship. Maximize this experience by being an engaged participant, and don’t forget to enjoy your summer!
Apply all of your knowledge, experience, and preparation, as this is your time to shine. Attend recruiting events and network with firm professionals, then apply for an entry-level position with HCVT before the application deadline. If you are pursuing a master’s degree after completing your undergraduate program, you should apply for a summer internship, not an entry-level position.
We welcome you to reapply if you did not receive an offer in the fall. Make the most of your final year.

Congratulations on your graduation! Take pride in all you have accomplished as you begin your career. If you are pursuing a CPA license, try to pass as many sections of the CPA exam before your start date.
“My biggest takeaway is that I could tell that HCVT truly cares for their employees and interns. They go above and beyond for you, which makes you want to go above and beyond for the firm.”
“I found the program to be a great insight into the culture and mission of HCVT, while also giving me a chance to interact with peers and professionals from across the region. I also learned more about my own strengths through my MBTI assessment, and gained clarity on how I can grow personally and professionally.”
“I had a really positive experience with this internship program. The culture is so welcoming and supportive, which says a lot considering our work was conducted remotely. Often, these aspects can get lost over technology, but it was not lost here.”
Recruiting may still be a bit different this year, but it all begins on campus – even if it is virtual. We are on-campus (at certain universities) and recruiting virtually throughout Southern California, Arizona, Texas, and Utah. Join us at one of our recruiting events! Connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check with your campus accounting organizations for important event information, dates, and deadlines. You can also find details on our social media sites!

"I started my career at HCVT right out of college. I was married with a two-week-old son, and the firm really took a chance on me as I needed sponsorship for a working visa as a non-US citizen. In college, I was a student-athlete. The discipline, hard work, and dedication instilled in me as a collegiate athlete helped me develop into the person I am today, both professionally and personally. The exposure to a diverse mix of clients has provided a solid foundation of tax knowledge. The growth of the firm and the type of clients I serve has allowed me to specialize in partnership taxation. I find great reward and satisfaction in my career in public accounting. I am proud to be part of the HCVT family."
