Assurance Services
You'll work closely with our industry-focused teams to deliver quality audits and other assurance services to both public and privately owned middle-market companies as well as not-for-profit and governmental organizations. It’s a chance to direct projects, develop others, and manage client relationships. You’ll conduct engagement planning, process and controls testing, audit procedures, analytical reviews, and accounting research as well as draft financial statements, disclosures, and other reports.

Tax Services
You'll deliver quality tax solutions to a broad range of clients, including public and privately owned middle-market companies, as well as not-for-profit organizations and high net worth individuals. You’ll develop industry expertise and hone your skills in areas such as partnerships, estate planning, international taxation, and tax provisions.

Rotational Program
Can’t decide between assurance or tax? In select practice offices, you can gain exposure to both with our rotational program. You’ll begin your tenure in either assurance or tax, spending approximately three to six months actively working on relevant assignments. Afterward, you may rotate into the other department for an additional three to six months. At the end of your second rotation, you’ll declare which department is right for your career.

Activate Your Career

Each year Moss Adams sponsors Project Run with It, an opportunity for members and candidates of Beta Alpha Psi—the international honor organization for financial information students and professionals—to gain real-world consulting experience and provide meaningful community service to not-for-profit organizations.

Each participating not-for-profit organization presents its business challenges and answers questions for selected students during the Beta Alpha Psi Annual Meeting. Afterward students have one and a half working days to develop strategies and formal presentations that showcase a solution for their assigned not-for-profit. The organization’s leaders and a panel of Moss Adams judges choose a winning team for each of the cases presented, and each Beta Alpha Psi chapter represented on the winning teams receives $1,000.

Project Run with It is a unique opportunity to experience what client service is really like. You’ll tackle genuine business issues in real time with a team of like-minded students, gaining critical experience while contributing meaningfully to a not-for-profit organization’s success. Visit the Beta Alpha Psi Web site to learn more about eligibility and the application process.
