Why? Not just because YHB helps you design your own accounting firm career path and gives you the training, guidance, and technology you need to move ahead, but because you also become part of a team that enjoys working together, playing together and succeeding together — and giving back to the communities we serve, too.
The Associate Pool experience provides an opportunity to work in a variety of areas rather than focus heavily in any one area. New graduates are not forced to decide between audit and tax; they can experience both first before deciding how to specialize!
From day one, you’ll belong to a “circle” of firm members who collaborate on a variety of stimulating projects. As a result, you’ll be exposed to many types of accounting-related work in both audit and tax practice areas, so you can see which are most appealing to you. Plus, you’ll constantly build your skills and knowledge by working with more experienced team members. Before long, you’ll be sharing what you know with new recruits, so you can move up to new challenges.
At the end of the Associate’s first year, they will be assigned to a specific department. During that first year, they are:
- Actively involved in real work
- Exposed to a wider variety of engagements, industry segments and YHB professionals
- Empowered to start their career on the path best suited for them
Of course, we also offer excellent compensation, great benefits, flexible schedules, and a paperless, high-tech work environment. We’re not afraid to wear pink for breast cancer, have a firm-wide dodge ball game, hold employee trivia contests, compete in an internal meme competition, among other fun events. Of course we recycle and practice energy efficiency, and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, United Way, and other nonprofit organizations. Not to mention our employees are able to volunteer their time to professional and nonprofit boards and organizations that fulfill their personal passions.
Don’t just take our word for it. Visit our offices, talk to our people and see for yourself why so many talented graduates like you join our firm — and stay.
