Internships or not, if you want to do taxes, you'll need to say goodbye to most of your life and family time from Mid January to Mid April.

However, the alternative would be to not work for an accounting firm but to work for a larger company in an accounting department. That way you aren't dedicating your life to tax season.

It's really a catch 22. Taxes and working in an accounting office is probably a great avenue to put on your resume. Most will be looking to hire paid entry level positions between now and the end of the year, but will require a lot of hours and dedication.

Businesses looking to add to their accounting departments typically want proven individuals. And, the ability to learn diverse industries is limited.
