GAINESVILLE, Ga. (April 2021) — Five tax and audit interns recently completed their internships at Rushton, one of the region’s largest business accounting and consulting firms.
Hunter Finch, Jordan Gooch, Katie Rump, Francisco Gonzalez and Madison Moore were chosen for the Rushton internship program based on their academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community involvement and a formal interview process.
Rushton designs its program to give accounting students real-world experience and insight into the daily tasks and responsibilities of a staff accountant in the firm.
“During my internship, I’ve learned how different every client and engagement can be and how accounting can be a constant learning experience. It can really keep you challenged and engaged,” Gonzalez said.
