The principles of accounting are constantly moving. Tax and business regulatory environments are increasingly complex, communication systems are instantaneous and 24/7, and technology improves the speed and format for service delivery. Yet the industry core remains stable – making public accountants one of the most trusted business and financial advisors in the professional services economy.
We take the trusted advisor role seriously; our staff development opportunities are designed to encourage self-analysis and help our staff to continually improve. New career professionals have opportunities to grow with highly respected leadership, where the pace has a self determined flavor. Experienced professionals work in a client-focused atmosphere – both directing and delivering the firm’s services – while supporting and collaborating with all levels of the firm’s services and professionals.
We are always on the lookout for prospective and experienced accountants with a solid knowledge base of the accounting, finance, and digital technology industries. Our mission is focused on integrity and competence in client service, and the importance of work and career life balances. We know that both mission components are necessary to ensure the future success of the firm; and we hope our staff can make our firm their “career home”.
Characteristics of successful candidates include self-starters, who are analytical, motivated, and able to work independently across a broad range of client tax and accounting problems. We are always on the lookout for candidates with strengths in tax and financial services, as well as software applications and digital technology, to manage projects for businesses and individuals who are detail orientated and have good writing and communication skills.
Although your formal education led to a degree or proper certification, a lifelong love of learning is appreciated. The Peterson & Associates staff is filled with specialists that will work with individuals, families, estates, and corporations. Interested candidates with strong detail characteristics and good writing and communication skills, with an interest in developing skills across a broad range of the tax and accounting project areas will find us a great workplace.
Our practice is focused on taxation, accounting and auditing, and business advisory services. Interested candidates and intern prospects may forward letters of introduction, resume, references, and relevant information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peterson & Associates provides permanent employees with a full menu of benefits including retirement plans, health benefits, and paid time off. Our firm covers the cost of licensure, professional training, professional insurance, and trade association memberships. We encourage client development activity and community involvement, and pay for many costs incurred by staff participation.
The very best relationships are when both parties benefit. Peterson and Associates have been serving both businesses and individuals in Southwest Washington since 1962. We take the time to know you — and understand your goals. We’re committed to providing service that puts people first.
