One of those is a book called The CSH Way. Unique in the industry, it stands as our firm’s guide to creating remarkable relationships. And it outlines – for every member of this firm – a common understanding of the client experience that CSH seeks to deliver.

This book gives our firm – and you – an advantage. By arming yourself with the knowledge and techniques proven to win and retain clients, you’ll be ahead of your peers at other firms. You’ll have the ability to impress and engage clients, and no matter what level you’re at, that skill will benefit you throughout your career.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clark Schaefer Hackett (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2018.


    I met with a recruiter at a school event. They sent me an email with interview details. It was a conversational interview. No behavioral questions. I met with two staff members followed by Two Managers/Principles. Mostly reviewed my resume. Had a very positive experience. Followed up two days after with an offer.
