Audit intern

January - March 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I was able to work on multiple diverse clients; overtime was allowed so on one client I averaged 65 hour work weeks (which meant I made good money). Also, in long work weeks, food is frequently provided.

What I wish was different

I didn’t like one of my teams because the Senior did not like delegating work, so she would work and the rest of us would look for things to do or read the employee handbook until she found something. I wish I had been able to request a different team at that point.

Advice

Go all in. Sometimes the hours are long and hard, but give it your all when you’re there and process it later.

IT Audit and Assurance Interm

June - August 2019 • Irvine, CA

What I liked

I gained a lot of practical skills that made it easier to see how the academic content I learned was relevant.

What I wish was different

I had no complaints about the internship itself. I wish I had applied for an internship in prior summers.

Advice

Getting and internship might seem nerve-racking and uncomfortable, but getting out of your comfort zone is the only path towards growth. Putting it off will only put you at a disadvantage. It is never too early to attempt to get an internship, and even applying for one after Freshman year is a good idea.

Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

KPMG’s Audit Internship provided me with a great amount of hands-on experience as I was assigned to multiple clients the entire summer. I was able to work in audit engagements and rotate in various industries. One of the best experience as an intern is being able to participate in KPMG’s National Intern Training. You learn so much about your service line and how everything is being applied to the daily work day.

What I wish was different

As an intern, you are always worried about your performance since this is the potential company that you want to work for. With that, I wish I had taken more time to network more than I did.

Advice

For everyone applying or entering an internship, I would strongly encourage you all to be open on what you want and what your goals are. Firms, professionals and recruiters are seeking you out as much as you are trying to fit in their companies. If things aren’t going well, you have to speak up and let them know. I think a lot of students forget that.

Audit Intern

January - March 2019 • Short Hills, NJ

What I liked

I loved my experience as an intern. The opportunity to have an internship during the winter audit busy season while also staying on track with class credits was awesome.

What I wish was different

I wish it was a bit longer or started earlier so that I could experience an audit start to finish.

Advice

Make connections and relationships with the people you work with. Networking is far more valuable than one can imagine.

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.

Tax Intern

June - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed living and working in San Francisco. KPMG is a great company and did everything they could to make sure I was growing my knowledge and having a positive experience.

What I wish was different

San Francisco is beautiful, but incredibly expensive. I wish that KPMG's compensation in San Francisco was adjusted accordingly, but instead I made a similar amount of money to interns working in Des Moines, IA.

Advice

Overall I am incredibly happy with my experience with KPMG this past summer. One piece of advice for interns is to be incredibly attentive to your work. The Big Four accounting firms bring in a ton of interns each summer. Meeting new friends is a great part of the internship, but it's all too easy to get too comfortable and end up not getting a return offer.
