Seasonal Business tax intern

April 2020 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

It was a smooth transition from my regular internship which ran from January 3rd - April 15th. With Covid-19 I had already been working remotely with this company so I had the technology to continue this work throughout the summer and moving forward. They are super understanding with the school work and allow me to continually learn more tax software.

What I wish was different

I’m a very extroverted person so I very much missed the in person atmosphere in the office. This is something out of their control, but overall they have several virtual events i.e. talking tables and happy hours.

Advice

If you find a company you want to stay out after school keep your options open to new opportunities they might give you.

Financial Crimes

July - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I liked how even given the pandemic, the company still found a way for the intern class to come together virtually and engage in a meaningful internship program.

What I wish was different

Advice

Take in all of the trainings because they will in turn be useful.

Audit Intern

July - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

All of the time and effort that the company put into making this virtual internship experience the best it could be under the difficult circumstances. It wasn't ideal for anyone, but I am so grateful for the opportunity I was given this past summer to connect with professionals from the firm and am even more grateful for the full-time job offer that was extended to me.

Internal Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Springfield, VA

The engagement team was professional and welcoming. I really felt like a part of the team. The work was directly contributing to the firm's business, not stereotypical "intern work." I never fetched a single cup of coffee.

They're going to FEED you. Pay attention and do your best.

Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Denver, CO

What I liked

I loved getting experiences on multiple audit teams, meeting people in the firm, and living in Denver. Overall I learned so much throughout my internship and met so many great people.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have heard more about people's path at the firm (people that had been there a while such as managers and partners).

Advice

Go into it willing to learn and be flexible, but know that there are so many opportunities in the accounting world, so don't feel pressure to like the first company you recruit with or do an internship with.

KPMG Embark Scholar

July - August 2020 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

The company culture is so positive! All of the associates were friendly, very team-oriented, and always there to assist should there be any question or help needed. Despite being online, I still feel that I was given the necessary resources that I needed to perform my work from a virtual setting. I was also able to meet and connect with so many new people (other interns, associates, directors, partners, etc.)

What I wish was different

I wish that my experience was longer. Due to the COVID outbreak, our experiences were shortened from 8 weeks to 4 weeks. I had such a great time even with the shortened schedule!

Advice

Do not hesitate to ask questions, if anything they are encouraged!! Also, be a SPONGE; try to absorb as much as you can from this experience. Though my experience was presented to me in a virtual format, it does not take away from the value of the knowledge that I gained from my time as an Embark Scholar :) Good Luck!
