2020 Summer intern

I can honestly say this has been the best summer ever.

I am a 3rd year business student at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia pursuing my Bachelor’s degree with a major in Strategic Human Resources Management. I had no prior experience working within an HR department; however, KPMG in Bermuda provided an immersive experience which has been transformative and allowed me to solidify my career goals. I developed quite a bit over this internship and learned more about myself and my capabilities. I was able to examine and participate in the many aspects of the HR function which include, but not limited to, immigration processing, social insurance reconciliation, medical insurance reconciliation, and a view into succession planning, policies, hiring requirements and termination. I was able to sit in on department/ team meetings and contribute to the discussion. I also had the opportunity to assist in the planning of the annual K-nect event and summer student social.

One exciting aspect of this internship that I truly enjoyed was being seconded to a local charity to assist them with a number of tasks and a major project. The end result of that was making further connections and presenting our analysis to the company leaders. The work I completed was meaningful; however, the honour that I found in working for KPMG was unexpected. KPMG exercises integrity in all aspects of its operations, and maintains that standard from its Managing Directors down to its administrative staff. The firm is exemplary and are truly good corporate citizens. Among its employees, there is an apparent sense of community. Additionally, the programme managers are keen to assign interns to teams that are closely or directly aligned with their career goals. I would recommend the Lift-Off programme to anyone who has a passion for working in the financial services industry and or Risk management.
