Shame that the experience was virtual as going into the office would've been really enjoyable. I really enjoyed the programme. Very informative and not boring. We also had multiple opportunities to interact with others on the programme as well as graduates and employees at KPMG so it had a good mix of 1 on 1 conversations and talks.
Over the course of the 3 days, the programme was really well structured and informative. I enjoyed the experience a lot as it was a safe environment to ask open questions and find out information about KPMG and life at KPMG. The sessions were interactive and the group work meant that although it was virtual we could still collaborate and get to know our peers. Overall, a really enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend.
I really enjoyed doing the KPMG virtual internship because it gave me a different perspective on what goes on inside of the industry and what skills are needed to do certain tasks. I had to use different softwares to do each tasks so it made me brush up on my skills for those and learn new ones will can be valuable in my placement and later on in life. Also it gave me a sneak peak into what a placement job could look like.
The KPMG summer vacation scheme was hugely enjoyable. The work given to me was interesting and varied. I met a lot of people who were very welcoming and friendly and encouraged me to seek the insights and opportunities I wanted to gain from the internship. I often found myself getting in early because I was enjoying the work so much and found it so interesting. I think I assumed everyone would work in silence all day, but whilst still learning lots I got chance to chat with everyone I worked with, which made a real difference. The days flew by!
Such a great insight scheme, the KPMG team were amazing and so supportive to make sure that the placement was as informative as it can be. All the sessions were very well planned and allowed for insight into both the firm and the culture itself. The people were incredibly friendly and I will definitely be applying for KPMG in the future
I enjoyed the virtual experience quite a lot. It was focused on data analytics and 'data science' is becoming a major part of many jobs today due to the importance of 'big data' in the modern world. This field will only get more and more useful so as well as being enjoying, I know that the experience will be useful for a variety of career paths for the future, which is very reassuring to know for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation scheme in the KPMG London office, even though it only lasted four weeks. I was quite surprised by the amount I learnt, especially about Audit as a career and the skills required in a working environment. Also everyone I met during my time there, employees and interns alike, were very friendly and helpful.
Amazing placement with a lot of interesting work and people. My team culture was great and I feel I have so much to learn and people around me who I can learn from. In terms of areas of development I find that I am not limited and if I want to explore an area, say SQL or python/machine learning there is someone within the team that is working on such projects and is able to show me the sort of work I could be working on as a graduate which was amazing.
KPMG gave me the necessary experience to excel in the future in a software engineering role.I worked closely with current graduate programme software engineers within the organisation observing and actively learning about their work process and projects.Attending meetings and other regular activities as a member of the team.
I very much enjoyed my 4 weeks with KPMG. My colleagues were exceptionally welcoming and went out of their way to ensure I felt part of not only the team but also part of the wider firm - putting me in contact with other departments to maximise my time with KPMG. As well as organising a number of social events to get to know one another outside the workplace setting also.
I enjoyed being given genuine responsibility, and I was treated as part of the team from the beginning. The tasks I was assigned became increasingly challenging over the course of the month, meaning I was always learning. However, on occasions I was asked to stay late into the evening, in spite of not having much work to do.
I had a really enjoyable time at KPMG. I managed to meet some other interns on the first day who I stayed in contact with throughout the vacation scheme. Additionally, all of the people I met in my department were so friendly and we ended up having a lot of fun on client site !
I felt that the internship provided a number of opportunities to get involved in different pieces of work. This included Pensioner's Transfer Values, Audit Assists and Accounting. This was assisted with Actuarial training that gave me a flavour of what the Actuarial exams would actually involve, this was especially interesting understanding the concepts that are at play within Excel formulas.
