Internship Opportunities

Helping you find your place and your purpose

Get Real-World Experience

Searching for an internship can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. Interviewers ask about your strengths, what you want to do, and where you want to end up after college. At TDT, we understand the internship itself is a big part of the process towards answering those questions.

If you are looking at this change as an opportunity to find a place to…

  • Gain experience in multiple service areas, including tax, audit, and advisory
  • Develop your technical skills through professional training
  • Work on a variety of real client projects alongside full-time associates
  • Leverage your individual strengths and abilities as part of a passionate team

…then you’ll have a better idea of where you want to end up.

We do what’s right & follow through. Even when it’s not the easiest or most popular choice.


We are authentic and approachable. We sincerely desire to be kind and helpful.

Team First

We leverage our individual strengths to do more together than we could alone.

Own It

We take responsibility, we take initiative, and we figure things out.


We love what we do. We don’t just work with numbers; we work with people.

What to Expect

Though our full-time team members work in one specific service area, our interns gain exposure and experience in all three areas: Advisory, Tax, and Assurance. This helps you explore where you are most passionate.
