Intern with SJHL

Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC (SJHL) is the largest accounting firm in McPherson County and we also have a large presence in Reno County and Sedgwick County. We are a Limited Liability Company (LLC) formed under the laws of the State of Kansas. Founded in 1936, we provide services to clients primarily in the areas of our brick and mortar locations; however, we also enjoy working with clients all across the globe. We have 10 Partners, four Principals, 35+ Certified Public Accountants, one Certified Financial Planner, and 40+ other accountants and support staff.


"After interning at SJHL, I moved to a large city and went to work for a regional accounting firm. I quickly realized that not all public accounting firms have the same expectations and cultural values as what I experienced at SJHL. These differing experiences helped me to identify the characteristics and qualities that were most important to me in finding the right work environment for my career. My SJHL internship showed me that I could have a highly challenging and rewarding career without working 70-to-80-hour weeks during the busy season, that embracing technology and being committed to personal and professional growth are essential to being successful in our profession, and that relationships matter."

My internship at SJHL helped me realize the people and environment I want to be around when I’m working. The culture at SJHL promotes not only professional growth but also personal growth, where I truly felt cared for and invested in when I was balancing work, school and other life events. The internship program was a wholistic experience that allowed me to work on technical skills through client billable work, work on personal goals through the mentoring program and have a lot of fun with intern activities that were programmed throughout the experience.

I enjoy interning at SJHL because the people at this firm want to see me succeed in all areas of life, not just the business side of things.

Current Intern


Working with interns is exciting because it gives our current staff a chance to mentor future business leaders. On the flip side, interns bring in fresh energy and ideas into our business and it is fun to get acquainted with the talented students that will be joining the profession soon.

-Kelly Madden, Manager

Interning at SJHL was a great experience! I appreciated that SJHL demonstrated that I was a valued member of the team. Not only do they allocate time to developing professional skills, they took the time to ask about personal goals as well! Multiple team members also took the time to mentor me and make me feel comfortable in my workspace. A huge plus from transitioning from an intern to being full-time was that I came into my first full-time job more excited than nervous because I knew what my job responsibilities would look like and felt as though the internship had given me the skills I would need to be successful.
