Recruitment process: At Hayashi Wayland recruiting the right candidates is a firm-wide initiative. We are typically on campus hosting events, participating in career fairs or meet the firm days, and conducting interviews in the Fall. Our interview process consists of candidates meeting with various individuals, at all levels of our firm, to help them learn more about who we are and what we do.



The right internship can be an influential part of shaping a successful and rewarding career. Our internships provide you with the same exposure as our associate hires and insight into the career opportunities and lifestyle of a public accounting firm. Internships typically run from the middle of June until the beginning of August; approximately 8 weeks. We begin interviewing in the Fall for positions the following summer.

What can I expect on my first day, week, month, year on the job?

You will start off with a Week of Welcome! This jam-packed, fun, interactive week will introduce you to your new team members and our culture. You will be assigned a mentor who will work closely with you to provide specific training about process and procedures, as well as a solid resource for any of your questions. As a member of our team you will be working with a career advisor who will help you establish performance and career goals. In the following weeks, you will be assigned audit and tax work where you will gain first hand experience and the opportunity to interact with clients. We also assign our new hires a small business client to work with, enabling you to understand the nuts and bolts of accounting from the clients’ perspective. During each step of the process our team members work with you to ensure that you are given the necessary resources to succeed.

Do I have to select a tax or audit career path before I begin?

Some individuals know from the start what career path they are interested in pursuing, but many are looking for hands on experience before they determine what will be best for them. At Hayashi Wayland, you are given the unique opportunity to experience both the audit and tax departments. During your first few years with the Firm, you can experience both working environments and determine what would be best suited for you. Do you already have a career path chosen? No problem. We will work to align your work assignments with the career path of your choice.

How much will I be expected to travel?

Most of our client base resides within the Tri-County area of Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties so travel is generally limited and required overnight stay is rare. Our average commutes to clients are generally under 30 minutes.
