I am currently enrolled at Dalhousie University in my second year, pursuing my Bachelor of Commerce Co-op degree. During my time in the program, I was unsure about what I wanted my future major and career path to look like. However, the 3-month internship at KPMG has been a fantastic experience which has allowed me to gain a greater understanding of the benefits of a career in marketing.  

I am extremely fortunate to have found a job with KPMG after finding it hard to secure other internships due to a fewer amount of marketing positions available. I found out about the positions KPMG has to offer through their established Lift Off Program. The program allowed me to gain real world marketing knowledge in an internationally recognized firm. At the start of my internship, I was thrown into the deep end and was given important work and real responsibilities. This meant I had to adapt to the challenging new experience.

Over the course of the internship, even though the workload was stressful at times, I always had a member of the markets team to turn to. They offered me guidance and support daily and made me feel like a full-time member of the team since the first day. I will miss the welcoming office culture and the laughs we had working together!

I know with certainty that I got the full markets experience as I did a variety of work and projects. The most memorable project I worked on was the Corporate Citizenship Report which I worked on throughout the internship. It showed me the effort that goes into a project behind the scenes and was reassuring to see the development of the project from the start to finish. Perhaps the most appealing part of the internship was the variety in the tasks as no two days were identical. From creating and scheduling social media content to putting together eAlerts and presentations, the work was always interesting and different which allowed me to develop a wide range of skills in a short amount of time.

The opportunity has allowed me to gain tangible experience in the marketing field and has prepared me for a future career in markets. Words can not express how grateful I am for the support and time each member of the team has shown me throughout my internship and I wish each of them the best as we all continue our career journeys!
