The days for audit interns vary depending on what client you are on. I was in the financial services industry so I reported to my client daily at around 9AM. I performed various tasks during the day such as tying out financials and getting familiar with the audit system. I usually left work around 5/5:30PM.
During my internship in KPMG, I was assigned to an Audit group, and we went to our client's site to work. My job was to verify financial statements, check and update the accuracy of the "Cash" part on the balance sheet with the bank's statements. Luckily, I found a part of my group's presentation on "KPMG in my eyes"
Former Information Technology Audit & Assurance Intern at KPMG
almost 2 years ago
I interned as an IT Audit & Assurance intern. The responsibilities of this role can range from doing internal controls testwork over financial reporting or even helping a team deliver a SOC 1/2 report. Mainly, a lot of the work will be test work over controls, ensuring that proper controls are in place. If you do not like controls/repeating tests then this may not be the right fit for you
An Advisory Summer Intern with KPMG works on real life projects/businesses depending on the current needs in the company. There is an endless projects that they're working on, but it's possible to communicate with your manager regarding your interest and your goals. Since I was interested in getting an exposure of all functions of the Advisory department, I was put in various projects weekly or bi-weekly such as auditing, participating in an M&A, doing forensic investigation, consulting management, etc. I was interning with them for approximately 10 weeks and I'd say I was in at least 5 different projects.
