Build Your Own Internship

What is the Build Your Own Internship Program?

The Build Your Own Internship Program allows students to intern with KPMG in two practices (Audit, Tax, or Advisory) instead of one. To build their internship, students will select one "Core Practice" and one "Developmental Practice", allowing them to spend time in both throughout their internship. Within their Developmental Practice, interns will work on a variety of client engagements in order to gain a thorough experience. Participants will be assigned a performance manager who will assist in goal setting, give regular feedback, and ultimately help guide the intern through their internship experience as well as their future career. Each intern is paired with a mentor at the start of their program to offer guidance and answer day-to-day questions.
