2022 Summer Intern

I am entering my final year at Quinnipiac University, studying accounting with a minor in finance. After attending various KPMG networking events, doing my own research on KPMG and being selected as the 2021 Frontier scholarship recipient. I was very interested in the company’s culture and the opportunities they have for students.

This is my first summer interning with KPMG. I worked in the Audit department in the Banking and Asset Management sector. I was introduced to the audit process from start to finish and I got to interact with clients. I really enjoyed networking with the Managing Directors and interacting with my fellow interns. The highlight of my internship was traveling to Denmark and taking part in the KPMG Global Advantage Program and returning to Bermuda to share my newfound skills and knowledge with the Managing Directors and my fellow interns.

I am beyond grateful for being offered an internship at KPMG and I am looking forward to continuing my career with KPMG.

In the final two weeks of my internship, the intern group was split amongst various charitable organizations to utilise the skills and knowledge we have accumulated over our time at KPMG to assist a local non-profit in various tasks. I completed my local charity project with Keep Bermuda Beautiful where we completed a litter survey for the organisation. It felt good to be able to put my skills to the test for a good cause.

Something that I really enjoyed about KPMG’s internship was the mentorship and guidance that came with it. Each intern is assigned two full-time staff members who are there to help guide you, but your entire team is there to support you in addition to your assigned mentors. The office culture is welcoming and inclusive as I felt like I was treated like any other full-time employee.

I would highly recommend KPMG’s summer internship program to any Bermudian students who want to gain vital experience at a world-renowned firm!
