Winter Internship - What is it really like?

2016 Winter Intern Jenny Zhang shares her experience as a winter intern

As a winter intern, I really enjoyed the past two months that I have worked at Jones and Roth. I love everything about this internship: the culture of Jones & Roth, the training, the work environment, the accountability of my supervisors, and the collaboration with my peers.

I have learned a lot not only about affordable housing. the area that I mainly focused on during my internship, but I also improved my communication and collaboration skills while working with managers and co-workers. I have never been left on my own as a new intern. There was always someone here to help me (either staff accountants, managers or shareholders) when I had questions.

During the busy season, Jones & Roth as a firm really cares about their people. They have tried to ease our stress by holding various activities, such as trivia nights or sparkling Friday. During the work days, the Firm provided lunch or sweet treats throughout the season. And, there were always plenty of fresh fruits or other snacks for us in the breakroom.

There were so many great things that I liked about my internship with JR. I had such a good time here learning, working and improving. I am looking forward to starting as a full time Staff Accountant in July.

Jenny is a student at the University of Oregon.  She will be graduating June 2016 and starting as a Staff Accountant with Jones & Roth in July.  

Jones & Roth will be recruiting for 2017 winter internships in the fall of 2016.  Check your school career site or jrcpa.com for more information this summer.
