Meet Chelsea - 2015 and 2016 Summer intern.

2015 and 2016 Summer intern

I am currently a student at Oakwood University pursuing a Bachelors in Accounting with a minor in Business Administration. Curious of what an accounting experience would be like I first entered into the KPMG summer internship programme in 2015. I wanted all of my unanswered questions be answered, and all my doubts to surpass.

Through research, I found KPMG’s internship programme was the right fit for me considering the investment they make in each student. I had the opportunity of attending various Lunch and Learns which focused on communicational skills, dress code, dining etiquette and had the opportunity to participate in various charitable projects. Each intern was assigned mentors to assist with the internship process.

I am very privileged to work in different sectors throughout my 2015 and 2016 experiences. In 2015, I worked in the Compliance department. This allowed me to understand the foundation of internal and external controls. This year, I am working with the KPMG Enterprise team. Having the ability to see firsthand, the auditing cycle and the client and auditor relationship was intriguing, especially when dealing with local clients. My passion for auditing grew and the understanding of the importance of accountants became clearer. I was able to feel comfortable with my career path; knowing that my personality can still shine and I can still be myself was self-assuring.

My advice to anyone considering and internship with KPMG, is when you become an intern at KPMG, the minute you step into the building, you are now a full-time employee. Your workload, the materiality of your work, is in comparison to a staff accountant, your work is held at the same importance. I would definitely, suggest this internship programme to anyone interested in the accounting or business profession who is ready to grow into a better businessman or businesswoman.
