Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

What I liked about my internship this summer was absolutely the people. Everyone that I worked with was not only so approachable but also easy to talk to and ask for help. There were many events that gave us the opportunity for interns to ask questions to those above us that we would normally not work with (managers, partners etc). I even had a partner shadow day where I was able to see what a partner does day to day.

What I wish was different

I would say the amount of time that I spent on each client was too short. For two engagements, I was on them for two weeks, and the rest were just a few days. I feel that it would be ideal to stay on one engagement for two to three weeks so we really get a feel for what it would be like to work on that engagement.

Advice

One piece of advice would be to ask (good) questions and be enthusiastic about being there. The last thing your senior want is an intern that doesn't want to be there or someone who complains about the work they are assigned.

IT Audit and Assurance Intern

June - September 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

KPMG is an incredible, people first firm that values their employees over everything. As an intern, you are give countless opportunities to network with your peers, team and even the leadership of the firm. They want you to get the most out of your time with the company so they ensure you have ample opportunities to learn and make lasting connections.

What I wish was different

Since they training in Orlando with all 1000+ interns, they focus primarily on soft skills. It would be nice if they introduced you to the software and materials you would be using all summer before you got to your team.

Advice

Reach out to as many people as possible! The leadership of the firm loves to talk to students to hear our perspective and ideas, so reach out while you have the chance!

business tax services intern

June - August 2019 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

I really liked the team that I worked with and the firm as a whole. Everyone is very driven but they also support the team to the fullest extent and care about everyone at the firm.

What I wish was different

Honestly I had a great experience, I don’t think I would’ve changed anything.

Advice

It’s hard for people to decide between Tax and Audit when they don’t have any experience. I would say if you want to do Tax then you have to prepare for working with the same people in the same environment everyday. Everything is very consistent and straightforward, although it can be difficult. If you want Audit, prepare yourself for traveling and working with different people all the time.
