During the interview process you will meet with a variety of people at multiple levels within the firm from managers, to senior managers, to partners. Our interviews typically last from 2-4 hours depending on the position.
Keiter does conduct virtual interviews; however, our preference is to meet you in-person. If your interview is in-person, you get the chance to speak informally with team members who have the same title you would have coming in to Keiter. You will also tour the office and meet with HR to go over benefit information.

Traditionally, the expected accounting firm career path is a direct line from associate to partner. We realize that there is no “one-size-fits-all” career path. Because of this, team members can decide to develop in place or develop for growth. Developing in place allows team members to develop specific competencies to grow in their current role. Developing for growth allows team members to develop competencies to progress beyond their role. Find out more about career development at Keiter here.
