The KPMG Internship Program
Internships are more than just a job and a paycheck- they offer you the opportunity to explore career opportunities, network, find mentors, and gain valuable experience. KPMG strongly believes in the importance of internships. We have created an internship program that we believe is an excellent way for students to get an inside look at a career with an audit, tax and advisory firm. KPMG’s internship program is designed to provide you with a valuable learning experience. Since we view our internship program as a “stepping stone” for a career at KPMG, the programs and processes we use over the course of the internship mirror those we use for our full-time professionals. Our internship program is designed for individuals who have three or more years of university education at the time they begin their internship.
KPMG’s Summer program begins with training in June and is a seven to ten-week program, depending upon your personal availability and the office needs. You receive a competitive salary during your internship. Upon successful completion of your internship, you may be considered for full-time employment with KPMG.
