Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I really enjoyed getting to know all of the employees as they helped me through some of the new and difficult tasks. They were always willing to take the time to include you conversations, in meetings, and in any events that were going on within the office. They truly make you feel as a part of the company and that helps to give you confidence to perform to the best of your ability. They always took the extra step to allow you to not only understand the task, but the way that the tasks that you were performing fit into the larger picture.

What I wish was different

I wish that the internship had been a longer. The weeks flew by and there was so much more to see and learn from this company and this internship. It was an amazing opportunity that I simply wish had lasted longer.

Advice

I advise to always get the most out of every situation. If you are sitting in a meeting to take notes, take notice of how everyone is sitting, how they are taking notes, and how they are dressed. If you take time to notice the little details you can begin to understand the little differences that separate the high performers.

Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

There was a strong emphasis of building a close relationship with your teams, so I always felt comfortable and welcomed at work. There was also a strong emphasis on mentorship, so I never felt like I was diving into an abyss with new projects or in planning my future career. That being said, they didn’t hold my hand the whole way through so I had a lot of room to grow and learn as well.

Restructuring Services Intern

May - July 2018 • Sydney, New South Wales

What I liked

I loved the people who I worked with at KPMG. The Restructuring Services team was small, but was a very tight knit group of people. I enjoyed my experience there and learned so much about the professional services industry.

What I wish was different

At KPMG, it felt at times that my work had very little impact on the team. This started to change as the internship progressed and my team members trusted my work more, but this is one thing I wish had been different.

Advice

The way you treat people is more important than anything in the professional services industry. It is an industry where your product is your people.

Tax Intern

June - August 2018 • Louisville, KY

What I liked

I liked how I was treated as a full-time associate. I spent a week in Orlando with other KPMG interns from around the country learning everything I would need to be successful, and I was eased into the work upon returning to the office. After being guided through my first assignment, I was given a workload very similar to that of a first-year associate, which I liked. My coworkers were always willing to help with any questions I had and wanted to see me succeed.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been another intern at the office so that I would have had someone to ask more intern-specific questions to. Occasionally I had issues/questions about things that interns specifically had to accomplish, so my coworkers were not able to provide much guidance since they were not going through the process themselves.

Advice

Be sure to embrace the opportunity and know that everyone in the entire company is there to help you. Never be afraid to ask questions because everyone understands that you are just starting out and they were once in your shoes. If you work hard everyday, build relationships with the people in the office, and produce good work, you should receive a full-time offer.

What I liked

What I wish was different

I wish that each intern at my office was given more similar workloads. Some interns had significant time unassigned in the office, while others were being required to work overtime at their assigned clients.

Advice

Be a sponge. Observe thoroughly and always be ready to take notes. There is a lot to be learned.
