Drawing on your base of 5-8 years of experience, you will be responsible for handling several client engagements simultaneously. You’ll maintain client relationships and develop a referral network for business development. As a Manager, you will possess a high-level understanding of business and industry concepts and use these as a foundation for providing proactive advice to current and prospective clients.

Senior Manager

Once you have effectively developed the skills of a Manager, as a Senior Manager you will be tasked with handling increasingly complex client situations and may, at times, supervise managers and the balance of the client service team. You will become increasingly involved in Firm management and will maintain a network of contacts to increase your visibility in the community. Our Senior Managers, Principals and Partners comprise the “Executive Group,” which meets regularly to address Firm strategic and operating initiatives.


A Principal at Haskell & White is a unique level that can be a career destination or the final stepping stone on your track to becoming a Partner. As a Principal, you possess technical capabilities on par with the Firm’s Partners and will be assigned the full duties and responsibilities of Partners including handling client relationships, some of which (particularly in the audit and attest arena) are overseen by Partners; community involvement; and certain administrative duties. You will be encouraged to hone these skill areas as you progress toward candidacy for Partner.


If you are a candidate for Partner at Haskell & White, you will likely have at least 12 years of experience in public accounting. At this level, you will have proven to be an exceptionally skilled technician, personnel supervisor, client account manager and business advisor. As a Partner, you will be responsible for developing and maintaining client relationships; reviewing and approving technical work products; and overall firm administration.
