Accounting Internship

Goshen Bookkeeping & Consulting (GBC) is a boutique accounting and consulting firm whose mission is to empower, educate, and transform nonprofits and service-based small businesses to build sustainable profits.

The word Goshen (pronounced GOH-shu-uh-n) means growth and is at the core of everything we do. Our team wears multiple hats in helping our clients connect the dots between mission, people, technology, and accounting.

Financials do not drive our mission; relationships do. 90% of the time, the conversations we have with clients are not about financials. They are about the everyday problems and challenges they encounter with operations. And our goal is to provide the reassurances and resources they need to thrive.

We pride ourselves on doing the work right the first time and provide high-quality service to our clients. We are a 100% remote workplace, so team members must be self-motivated, organized, love technology, have a teacher mindset for continuous learning and be effective communicators.

If you rely on paper to do your day-to-day function, this is probably not a good fit. We are a firm of the future that is paperless and love using technology to manage our workflows.

We are fearlessly committed to social justice and racial inclusion, and you should be too. Our clients are as committed as we are, and you must be comfortable having conversations about things that are uncomfortable for many people. 

We are looking for an accounting intern that loves accounting puzzles and has a problem-solving mindset in finding solutions to clients' complex problems. Our ideal candidate is eager to learn and will create high-quality client interactions and experiences for our clients, instilling confidence using deep customer empathy.

The intern will be adaptable, resourceful, tech-savvy, and a strong team player. They will have a keen eye for detail and a commitment to embracing cloud technology.
