What Our Interns Are Saying:
“This past tax season I had the opportunity to work for Berry Talbot Royer (BTR) as an intern…scratch that... I got to work for Berry Talbot Royer as a full-time tax employee. Though my label was an intern, it was so much more than that. If I had to sum up my experience in one simple phrase, I would say it was full of knowledge. There wasn’t a single day that I didn’t learn something (most of the time, there was much more than one thing that I learned). The staff at BTR is not only supportive, welcoming, and intelligent, but they also hold their interns to a higher standard that most (if not all) other internships. I was not handed “busy work” or sent to the photocopier every day. I never cleaned the bathroom toilet or got asked to make a coffee run. I handled real tax returns for real people. I communicated with clients and filed returns myself rather than spending hours on a return only to give someone else the credit. I used all of the same systems and programs that their full-time employees use. But most importantly, I had an outstanding internship that was full of knowledge, participation, and fun. **PS: If you’re big into perks and benefits, BTR offers free massages, snacks, and coffee all tax season. They also host several games throughout the season where you have a chance to win some extra cash! The perks are nice, but the learning experience is definitely better.”
“I consider myself very fortunate to have been a part of the 2017-2018 tax season internship at Berry Talbot Royer. I could not have asked for a more valuable and enjoyable experience. As my third internship experience, this one has by far exceeded my expectations in all aspects, including professionalism, expertise/quality of staff, management practices, company culture, etc. BTR has truly fulfilled their vision of being a firm that provides exceptional quality and customer
"By April 18, 2017, I was wishing the tax season was longer and the internship could keep going. I could hardly have asked for a more friendly, professional team to work beside and learn from for six months. I enjoyed being at a
"After having completed a 1040 tax season internship at Berry Talbot Royer, I would be very surprised if there is a better educational opportunity available for a student with aspirations of entering the Public Accounting arena, particularly with a focus on tax. The wide variety of BTR’s client base also provides the intern with an invaluable learning opportunity, especially within the tax arena. BTR clients range from farmers to doctors to storekeepers, both in state and out of state, and because of this broad client base, interns are exposed to a very high level and variety of tax reporting issues, consequences, and treatments. Having access to this wide array of 1040 projects can provide a better educational experience than working in a role that has a specific client base with similar tax issues and reporting tasks."
"During my time at Berry Talbot Royer, I felt very much included in all working activities and was always treated as a member of the staff. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to their careers, contributing to a positive working culture. I was very satisfied and impressed with the team-oriented working environment and level of professionalism conducted. Despite the ‘busy tax season’, I was consistently engaged by management and staff to ensure I was receiving the most benefit from my internship. With that, there was always staff available to interns that welcomed us to reach out at any time. As an intern, it gave me confidence that I was gaining skills from highly credible individuals."
"Berry Talbot Royer is a very good place to start your accounting career and I recommend every student to take the internship opportunity there. You will gain experience with the sophisticated software, work with very talented and knowledgeable people and see how very successful (and very well managed) company works from the inside."
"I would strongly recommend this firm to all students looking for a challenging and rewarding internship experience. I will always remember the people there as my mentors and team members, and I can only hope that one day I will become as good a professional as they are."
"The procedure of the tax internship in the firm is very organized and thoughtful. You will be trained to get a hold of tax software and practice on various types of tax returns prior to working on a "real" return. They will show you step by step: how to collect the relevant information, how to proceed in an efficient way, how to do research, and how to avoid frequent mistakes you make. You will learn, reinforce, and apply the skills you learned. They will further assist your learning with their years of accounting experience and passion. I strongly recommend Berry Talbot Royer to be the firm you do your internship with."
"I am extremely glad that I had the opportunity to intern at Berry Talbot Royer and would definitely recommend an internship with the firm to anyone that has the opportunity
