This depends on where you are interested in doing your internship and how far along you are in your studies. Most colleges have a career counseling office that can help arrange an internship or at least provide you with the names of the local accounting firms and their hiring contact. The bigger firms tend to offer paid, summer internships while smaller firms may only offer unpaid internships (but it is still good experience to have.) In addition, many firms may offer programs during the school year - some may even qualify for class credit. Also use the internet to identify the firms in your area and any opportunities they may offer.

Once you’ve declared a major, or during your junior or senior year of college, you might start thinking about applying for internships. Internships provide on-the-job training and real life experience under the supervision of people with expertise in the business or occupation. Internships are typically short in duration, lasting a summer, a quarter, or a semester, and either offer a token payment or college credit in return for your work. Most internships are for ten to 15 hours a week, and rarely more than twenty. This is because internships frequently take place during the school year, when students have obligations to other classes, and are often unpaid, which means that the student may need to also have a paying job.The safest way to locate a genuine internship is to go through your college; you may find that your school’s placement office or career planning office has a listing of local internships or access to a national database of internships. Ask other students and faculty at your school about internship possibilities. It’s best to start looking early; many internships are filled in fall for spring or summer, and many are very competitive.There are also many internship listings online. Be aware that there are companies who advertise a position as an internship when really, they’re looking for unpaid workers. Ask questions about what kind of training you’ll receive, who will supervise, and what kind of work you’ll be expected to do, and when. Check with your adviser and with appropriate staff at your school regarding the quality and reputation of the company and the internship. If you’re planning on receiving college credit, make sure that the internship will qualify before you even apply. Consider talking to previous interns about their experience as well.Keep in mind that if you take an internship in another city or country, you may need to have enough savings to pay for your transportation and living expenses, and to return home when you go back to school.

Manual accounting is the kind that a person does by means of a pen (or pencil) and paper, and (at most) an adding machine to help; computerized accounting is the kind that computers do for you, by means of spread-sheets.

The wisest way to prepare for a master's degree in accounting is to have your bachelor's degree in accounting first, or at least in business with an accounting minor or focus.

Any school or training course that requires students to "work" to complete credits could be seen as unfair labor practices. While schools defend having students complete "work" type assignments as part of the educational process, many students feel it is simply free labor with students unable to refuse or they will be terminated from the school.For example, student nurses complete rotations working in the hospital under the guidance of Registered Nurses (teachers or hospital staff as preceptors). Student Nurses complete scut work, the dirtiest work or most time consuming. For example, if all students do is make beds, hospitals save money because they do not need as many nursing aides or assistants on the day shift.Many college students seek internships to improve their resumes and chances to get a good job after graduation. But many interns are unpaid, "hired" (accepted) only to do low-level menial work with the hope of being noticed and included in the "real workings" of the company. Unpaid internships do provide work experiences, but it is still free labor.However, from the other side of the argument, schools or companies would say that these parts of an occupation give students first-hand and hands-on experiences they could not get elsewhere. Indeed, many students either discover on their own "this isn't for me" or students' deficiencies are noticeable, allowing schools to weed out inappropriate candidates before graduation. Failed internships may force students to completely chance career goals and paths.
