Grant Thornton

Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • Portland, OR

What I liked

I really enjoyed getting to know everyone that works there. I also really enjoyed getting out to a client and digging in to their processes. Every day I learned something new.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gotten to go out to clients more often. I had a total of three engagements but one of them we did from the office.

Advice

Get to know as many people as you can even if they don't work in your particular field.

Grant Thornton provided an excellent internship program with many fun events, as well as a coach/buddy system that paired you with peers and mentors within your department. I was working on projects from my very first day and was doing work that felt both meaningful and valuable.

What I wish was different

More variation in assignments (I was on the same project for most of the summer)

Advice

GT is a fantastic company to work for and they have a strong "people first" mentality that really shows.
