413 Days and Counting!

October 2013. That is the month during which I will start my career as a federal tax associate in the Columbus office of KPMG.  After ten weeks of learning, networking, and finishing projects for my team, I am happy to say that I will rejoin the Fed Tax department permanently next fall! Until then, I […]

Approaching the Finish Line

As I prepare to start my last week of the internship with KPMG, I find it important to take a minute to look back over the last eight weeks with the company and decide if public accounting, the Big Four, and KPMG specifically is the right career path for me. I was chatting with a […]

Pay it Forward!
Pay it Forward!

This Friday I had the privilege to visit the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus with fellow KPMG interns for a little community service.  We brought new books for the kids and read to them – or in my case, let them read to us! After reading to the kids, we helped them paint their […]

Tip #3: Find a Mentor, Be a Mentor

It is imperative as an intern to find a mentor – not only to help you build your network and stay in touch after your internship, but also to maintain sanity during your internship! I am lucky to have several mentors here at KPMG already.  One of the great things about the company’s internship program […]

Tip #2:  Be Patient

Let this be not only an internship tip, but also a life lesson… I am hands down one of the most impatient people on the earth – ask any of my friends or family members.  Therefore, being asked to complete tax compliance work for a client while navigating new software and complex systems all on […]

"We Go to the Canteen at Half Twelve"

When I found out that I would be participating in KPMG’s Global Internship Program in Ireland, I was happy because I knew it was an English speaking country (I took Latin in high school…very interesting, but not exactly practical).  However, I wasn’t completely expecting to encounter all of the different phrases and words I hear […]

First Days in Dublin, Ireland
First Days in Dublin, Ireland

I may never leave Dublin. My ideal type of weather is a football Saturday in the middle of October and the weather in Dublin is very comparable, even in July.  While the weather in the United States was approaching 95+ degrees, Dublin was at a very comfortable 65 degrees (18 degrees Celsius) every day last […]

Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln, Horseshoe Sandwiches, and Auditing
Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln, Horseshoe Sandwiches, and Auditing

Springfield, Illinois is known for being the city where Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s greatest Presidents, got his start in politics.  It is also said to be the place where corn dogs were created (although that claim is disputed), and is the home to the famous Horseshoe Sandwich. I had the great privilege of sampling […]

KPMG Chicago: The First Days
KPMG Chicago: The First Days

The accounting industry is driven by deadlines.  Clients require work to be completed by a certain deadline in order to file reports with various regulatory agencies.  I was aware of the importance of deadlines before starting at KPMG and even had first hand experience meeting deadlines before I started!  With my last final ending at […]
