What we look for in a candidate
We seek individuals with backgrounds in tax, accounting, law or economics. An academic skill necessary to succeed in Deloitte Tax is the ability to understand the underlying policy or theory behind tax rules, rather than focusing on memorization of code sections, limitation amounts, and various other thresholds.
But we look beyond accounting experience and excellent academic qualifications. Given the nature of tax work, we look for people with the highest level of integrity. We’re looking for well-rounded, goal-oriented individuals who can interact with clients, so strong interpersonal and writing skills are essential. Since you’ll work on multiple engagement teams, you’ll need to be able to juggle multiple commitments (including personal ones).
Finally, Deloitte Tax professionals also need to be team players – especially during our busy seasons – willing to assist others and ask for help if you’re struggling. Even if your assigned project is finished, those who excel in our organization will offer to help others who are still working, when it is necessary to complete a job.

Deloitte supports your progression through a well-defined career path by providing challenging assignments, mentoring, and targeted trainings.
