Tax Intern

June - August 2019 • Stamford, CT

What I liked

At KPMG, I felt like I was a part of a team the entire time! The training I received and the people I have met while interning are invaluable. I truly enjoyed my experience and learned so many things in such a short period of time.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more client interaction but also know that there isn't as much client traveling in tax as there is in audit.

Advice

Go in with an open mind and be ready to ask a lot of questions and take a lot of notes!

Management Consulting Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

The experience was absolutely fantastic. The teams were amazing, the training was phenomenal, and the clients were incredible. The other interns were great to spend time with and reflected the great people that KPMG seeks to employ.

What I wish was different

The travel from San Jose to San Francisco was a little rough so would have not been opposed to sticking to the south bay area but I understood the demand was necessary.

Advice

Go in with an open mind and willingness to learn! Arrogance is incredibly easy to spot in the auditing field and it just makes you look silly so be humble and ready to work and you will have a great experience.

I wish the internship had been longer. It was only 9 weeks and 1 week was all training, leaving only 8 weeks to be in the office.

Advice

Don't stress about what you think you do or don't know going into the job. Employers and coworkers are always there to teach you what you need to know to complete a task.

Federal IT Audit Intern

What I wish was different

Tasked on the right projects. Ability to switch positions from current position.

Advice

Any Big 4 internship will give you an insight into the work of many major companies and looks good on your resume.

June - August 2018 • Short Hills, NJ

What I liked

I liked working with different teams and learning more about the other departments within KPMG. I participated in the Embark program which means, I worked more on the administrative side, which also allowed me to have more time to make connections and speak with other teams to see what they were working on.

Auditing Intern

June - August 2019 • Portland, OR

What I liked

The interview process was very convenient, right on campus. I really enjoyed the summer getting to know all of the audit professionals and learning about my future career in the audit practice.

What I wish was different

Advice

If you are planning on going into the accounting profession, work for a company where you feel like you fit into the company culture. One of the main reasons I chose to intern at KPMG over other firms, was that the people made me feel very comfortable and welcome.
