        This summer, Saltmarsh will once again host our annual two-day Beacon Leadership Experience for rising college students in both Tampa and Pensacola. 

        Program Dates: 

        • May 7– 8th in our Pensacola, FL office 
        • May 15 – 16th in our Tampa, FL office  
        • Application Deadline: March 15th 

        New This Year: 

        • We’ll demonstrate key differences between tax and audit roles, and answer questions about what a “day in the life” looks like. 
        • Less talking and more doing – engaging students with more hands-on experiences and reflection time to connect classroom knowledge to the real-world. 
        • Make meaningful connections and learn how to market themselves.  

         Beacon Focus: 

        • Building Relationships: Students will meet industry leaders and make meaningful connections with professionals and peers. 
        • Coaching: Join interactive mini-sessions to prepare students for leadership positions and life after the classroom. 
        • Life in Public Accounting: Emphasis on life as a public accountant – we are throwing back the curtains and giving students the inside scoop on a 'Day in the Life' of audit and tax professionals. 
        • Interview Opportunities: Think of Beacon as a 2-day interview. Students can further showcase their individual skills and discuss future interests during a one-on-one interview. 

         Fun Statistics: 

        • 93% of our 2024 internship offers went to students who either attended Beacon or our open-house events. 
        • 81% of our 2023 interns received full-time offers.
