Why an internship?
Internships are more than just a job and a paycheck.  Internships offer you the opportunity to:

•    Explore Career Opportunities - by working in the field you have chosen, you can receive an inside look at your potential career path
•    Network - meet a variety of people in your chosen profession through your internship, allowing you to form relationships you can build on in the future
•    Find Mentors - certain individuals can help guide you through your internship and expose you to opportunities that you can aspire to
•    Gain Experience - these days, employers look for more in a potential hire than just good grades.  An internship experience is an opportunity for you to gain valuable experience that can help make you more marketable to employers
    What does KPMG have to offer?
    KPMG strongly believes in the importance of internships.  We have created an internship program that we believe is an excellent way for students to get an inside look at a career with an audit, tax and advisory firm.  At KPMG, we view an internship as the start of a career.   

    The KPMG Internship Program
    KPMG’s internship program is designed to provide you with a valuable learning experience. Since we view our internship program as a "stepping stone" for a career at KPMG, the programs and processes we use over the course of the internship mirror those we use for our full-time professionals.
•    Professional Development – You participate in training during the first week of your internship. This training program can expose you to KPMG’s culture and provide you with a knowledge base to draw upon throughout the remainder of your internship.   
•    Client Service – After training, you are assigned to a variety of client service engagements for the remainder of your internship.  These experiences can help you to gain a better understanding of KPMG and a career with an audit, tax and advisory firm. At KPMG, we feel that on-the-job experiences are some of the best form of professional development.
•    Performance Management – At the beginning of your internship you set goals.  To help you assess how you measure against your goals, you receive formal feedback from your supervisor at the end of each client engagement, to help you identify strengths and areas for improvement.
•    Technology –Your internship exposes you to KPMG technology and how we utilize technology everyday in our profession.  You are also provided a laptop to utilize for the duration of your internship.  
•    Networking –A number of social activities are planned throughout the internship program, allowing you the opportunity to bond with other interns and meet other KPMG professionals in a fun and relaxing environment.
•    Compensation – You receive a competitive salary during your internship.
•    Rewards – Upon successful completion of your internship, you may be considered for full-time employment with KPMG.  

    What is the timing for the KPMG internships?
    KPMG has two structured internship programs. Both programs have the same vision and design.  Some offices do make special arrangements if necessary.
•    Winter/Spring – This program begins with training the first week of January and is a one to three-month program, depending upon your personal availability and the office needs.  
•    Summer – This program begins with training in June and is a seven to ten-week program, depending upon your personal availability and the office needs.
