Tax Technology Intern - Data & Analytics

July - August 2020 • Denver, CO

What I liked

I loved that we had many chances to connect with mentors in the office.

What I wish was different

The training materials were general for all interns, and I wish there would have been more materials on my specific intern role. The internship was adapted due to COVID-19.

Advice

Take advantage of the opportunities that they provide for you to network and soak up as much information as possible!

Intern

July - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

KPMG did a great job connecting us with mentors at every level of the firm within our practice, and provided us with training that provided us a solid foundation to get started.

What I wish was different

Because of COVID circumstances, the internship was shortened and made virtual, and we were not able to join the teams and participate in client-facing work. I think that KPMG did the best they could under these circumstances, but we certainly did not get the full internship experience you would see in a normal year.

Advice

I would recommend trying to meet as many people as possible, build relationships, and don't be afraid to ask questions!

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!

Audit Intern

July - August 2020 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the connectivity of the internship, despite limitations from Covid-19 and quarantine. The internship really encouraged us to take initiative on what we make out of the internship.

What I wish was different

I wish we had more exposure to actual engagements and work.

Advice

Seek out as much experience as you can. Don't do things just to get by. Do them to develop and grow as a professional.

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.

What I wish was different

Nothing!

Advice

Try to get to know everyone you meet! Everyone who works at KPMG is incredibly intelligent and ambitious and want to help you excel your career. I got so much great advice from learning about others experience with the firm.

I wish it would’ve been in person, and that we couldn’t been put on an actual client project

What I liked

We got to speak one-on-one with 4 professionals, including a partner. Getting that time to ask questions and hear about their experiences was super valuable

What I wish was different

Online, so wish I could've experienced the firm in person and done actual work but that's COVID for you!

Advice

Talk to as many people as possible, ask questions, take initiative to stand out

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.

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

I wish we would have been able to do more hands on work, but I understand privacy laws considering we were remote.

Advice

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

Tax transformation technology intern

July - August 2020 • Montvale, NJ

What I liked

I loved the way they took care of the interns. Given the pandemic it surely would have been easier to cancel the internship but Kpmg went above and beyond to make our experience as fulfilling as possible.

What I wish was different

I think given the circumstances it was done in the best way possible.

Advice

It is what you make of it. You need to get out of your comfort zone and make an effort to network, especially now when everything is online.
