Sports Marketing Intern

May - July 2017 • Montvale, NJ

What I liked

I loved working with the team, it is a small team of 12 people but they do so many different things. I loved learning all the different sides of what they do for various events, such as the WPGA championship, the Women's Leadership Summit, and the Future Leaders program. It was amazing to travel with the team to Olympia fields for 10 days!

What I wish was different

More hands on projects in a sense where I would be doing less administrative tasks and more work that was challenging.

Advice

You may do an internship and realize it is not what you want to do and that is okay! Sometimes knowing what you didn't or don't like is more helpful than knowing what you do, because it helps point you in other directions!

What I wish was different

I wish I had done my internship closer to home. I would have been able to save a lot more money.

Advice

Keep and open mind about any work that they give you. Sometimes people just want to see what you are willing to do and how far you are willin to do. Everyday is a test.

Audit Marketing Intern

June - August 2017 • Woodcliff Lake, NJ

What I liked

I enjoyed learning more about auditing, which is something I wouldn't typically learn as a marketing intern at a typical place. I was put into an atmosphere that I am not particularly familiar with or comfortable with, but I am now able to say that I understand what goes on within an accounting firm such as KPMG.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been able to go to different departments within the Business Process Group. With that, I mean that there were a variety of marketing internships and we were all placed in one department. I wish that we were able to do some work for each department so we could get a more diverse experience and test other areas.

Advice

Take advantage of the networking opportunities with your peers and employees. You never know where you might cross paths again with one of your fellow interns, and it is good to keep in touch.

Corporate Management Intern

June - August 2017 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

For accounting majors who are looking to work in public accounting, but have not yet been exposed to the demands of each practice, this internship provides the perfect opportunity to understand where your skill sets fit best. Interns spent a week to a week and a half rotating through KPMG's three primary practices and were given projects to complete as well as regularly scheduled feedback. I was able to network employees at all levels (ie. first year associates, managers, partners). I am very appreciative for the challenges that I was given this summer as they served to shape both my professional and personal self.

What I wish was different

I can't say that there was anything I would have wanted to change. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Advice

Network, network, network! As an intern, you are not contributing as much technical skill so while it is important to focus on delivering the best project that you can, it is just as important to utilize the networks you have available to you. Schedule coffee and lunch meetings with associates, managers and partners. Don't be afraid to reach out to the higher-ups! Most do want to get to know you, and will commend you for taking the initiative. A strong network will help you land your dream role.

IT Audit & Assurance Intern

June - August 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved all of the industry experience I got throughout my internship. I got to work with several different clients across a wide array of industries which gave me valuable exposure that I wouldn't have gotten at another internship.

What I wish was different

I honestly don't wish anything had been different. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life!

Advice

Learn as much as you can and ask as many questions as possible. The internship is what you make out of it. Take advantage of every possible opportunity available to you, because the time really does fly!
