Opportunities for Employment

John R. Waters & Company is an established and growing firm. We are always very interested in discussing opportunities for permanent employment or internships with individuals who display a strong desire for a career in public accounting.


If you're like many of your peers, you have come to the conclusion that a career in public accounting is right for you, but you may be having difficulty deciding on which facet of public accounting you would like to specialize- audit, tax, consulting? It is a difficult decision that few are yet ready to make and that is to be expected.

One of the unique qualities of John R. Waters & Company is that we offer the opportunity to experience a broad range of projects in all facets of public accounting. As a junior accountant you will work on assigned attest or accounting engagements, in some instances assuming substantial responsibility (under supervision) for engagements involving compiled or reviewed financial statements and tax returns. In addition to preparing these reports, you will also participate in special consulting projects on a variety of accounting, management advisory, and tax planning matters.

As you continue to work with clients and become familiar with their operations, you will develop important advisory relationships with owners and managers, aiding them in making complex decisions about current and future business situations. You will find that you make a positive impact in the lives of many business owners. In addition, as you begin to network with other professionals, you will have the opportunity to bring on new clients - helping the firm to grow while benefiting professionally from that growth.

In addition to a strong desire for a career in public accounting, a successful candidate will possess a strong accounting background, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, will also have demonstrated leadership abilities and a drive to set and achieve significant goals.

"I had a great experience at JRW. I learned a lot more than I thought possible for a summer job. Not only did I gain valuable work experience through training and observation, but also I experienced the importance of communication skills and their important application to the learning process."
