Careers

A career in accounting can offer exciting opportunities whether you are a new college graduate or an experienced professional.

At SGA, we can help you sort out some of the decisions you’ll need to make when considering a career, particularly in accounting. Our professionals can help answer your questions and discuss the different career options working in public accountin.

As well, we offer opportunities for college students to gain real-world knowledge from accounting professionals while still going to school by being an intern during busy season. Many of our interns continue to work part time out of tax season while they finish their degrees and many of them also come to work for us full-time once they complete their degrees.

We believe in the work hard, play hard philosophy. We work hard to satisfy our clients needs, but we want you to strike a balance between work and personal life. Flexible work schedules and closing the office on Friday afternoons outside of tax season helps to provide that balance.
