GREENVILLE, S.C. (October 24, 2017) – Elliott Davis is pleased to announce the firm was ranked first in the nation for best overall internship by Vault.com, an influential source of ratings and insights for students and professionals. This is the fifth consecutive year Elliott Davis has ranked among the top four best overall internship programs in the nation.
Vault.com polled more than 12,000 interns from more than 100 companies about their internship programs to determine an overall score for their experience. Interns were asked to rate their experience in five primary categories including quality of life, compensation and benefits, interview process, career development, and full-time employment prospects. These ratings were then averaged to determine an overall score from 1 to 10 for each program. Elliott Davis received a score of 9.79, up from 9.73 last year.
The Elliott Davis seven-week summer internship program, Envision, is designed to give students an opportunity to explore potential career paths, build relationships throughout the firm and gain valuable work experience in public accounting. The program is built around the firm’s mission of making a positive impact on our clients, our people and our communities. During the program, students gain experience working on client engagements, participate in community service projects, and are involved in leadership development activities. The Envision class of 2017 included 105 students who completed more than 2,500 hours of community service and more than 15,000 hours of client service work.
“Envision is a reflection of who we are as a firm and as a community,” said Chief Human Resources Officer, Rachael Oswald. “We are honored that Envision is consistently recognized as a great internship experience. Our team knows how important the program is to the future of our firm, and building meaningful relationships with our interns doesn’t end when the internship does.”
