Internal Audit Intern

May 2017 - August 2018 Bryn Mawr, PA
“An Internal Audit Internship was great. SJU really pushes students towards Public Accounting (which I have recently accepted an internship with PwC) and some corporate accounting. Internal Audit provides a great experience for all accounting students because you get to learn and participate in many different processes including SOX Testing, Direct Assistance substantive testing, and operational audits! I got to test around two dozen SOX controls, but also worked directly with the company's external auditors in testing Revenue, CWIP, and inventory transfers. I developed such a great professional network with everyone there, but especially the external audit engagement team. Because of this network, I connected with recruiters for the company and many other current employees! I gained valuable soft skills in addition to those technical skills I learned and got great experience going into my penultimate year's internship with PwC.”
