What is Audit? Visit this link for a brief video description

An independent audit is one of the foundations for establishing trust in the capital markets. If this principle is integral to your career goals, you should know that KPMG believes organizational culture has a significant impact on audit quality. KPMG LLP understands and values their role in the capital markets and continually seeks to enhance the perception of our profession by supporting our people, strengthening quality, and affirming the importance of trust and integrity.

At KPMG, our approach is to deliver a quality audit that is risk-based, industry-specific, and tailored to an entity’s operational structure and size. Quality is the foundation of our audit. KPMG’s Audit practice provides the Financial Statement Audit as its primary service, which is supported by a rigorous audit methodology, robust technology and global consistency. KPMG’s focus is on the client’s financial statements, emphasizing the critical nature of substantive procedures, as well as effective risk assessment and control testing activities. To further enhance our Financial Statement Audit, KPMG auditors use a multidisciplinary approach to combine such technical knowledge and skill sets as tax, forensics, IT attestation and valuation as well as an industry focus to the audit to help ensure that the engagement team understands the client’s business.

•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.

•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.
