Former Intern Insights

What made you decide to be an intern of RGM&Co.?

I decided to apply for internship at KPMG to enhance my knowledge on Taxation Law. At KPMG, I was able to apply the knowledge and skills I learned in law school through involvement in actual cases and projects relative to the legal profession.

 

What made the internship unique and special?

The tours are the most unique part of the internship program. It's rare for companies and institutions, both public and private, to host government tours. The tours were organized and well-thought out. Overall, the experience was novel, informative and eye-opening which makes it special.

 

How has the internship impacted your future?

It is no secret that Taxation Law is one of the hardest law subjects. Through the internship program, I was able to appreciate Taxation Law more. Being involved in tax related activities gave me a  glimpse of what the tax practice entails. Moreover, KPMG proved that theory is really different from practice.

 

What was the highlight of your internship?

The highlight of my internship would be the BIR and the SEC tours. During the course of the internship program, I've asked several tax professionals if they have toured or visited either the BIR or the SEC and most of them answered no. We also got the opportunity to learn more about the functions, mandates and services being provided by the aforementioned government agencies. The experience itself was very novel and a fun way to learn.

 

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become an intern under RGM&Co.’s tax practice?

As a former intern, my advice to aspiring Interns is to persevere and work hard. Tax is a very intricate and technical field which requires a lot of patience and hard work to understand. It might seem hard or even impossible to figure things out at first glance, but you'll find that the experience itself is worthwhile and rewarding. There's never a dull moment in KPMG as every day is a learning experience.
