Meet Our 2020 Summer Interns

In spite of the challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PBMares continued its internship program virtually! This summer, we had the pleasure of working with twelve interns across six of our ten office locations and two states. The best and the brightest from eight schools immersed themselves in working with clients while learning about tax, accounting, audit and assurance, and much more. Many thanks to our hard-working interns this year!

PBMares’ Summer Internship provides students a well-rounded program that focuses on learning and development, client service excellence, volunteerism, and relationship building. Interested in an internship with PBMares? We want to hear from you! Contact us today.
