This multi-year experience is designed for students who have two or more summers available to intern. The CMI program is more than just a job and a paycheck. Our CMI program offers you the opportunity for:
• Professional Development and Training – You will have the opportunity to learn about our firm, culture and technology through a variety of presentations and online training courses your first week. Additionally, you will participate in an interactive conference designed specifically for CMIs. This conference will help you to further develop your skills and knowledge during your internship. • Assignments – You will be assigned various projects and responsibilities throughout the summer to help you to gain a better understanding of KPMG LLP and a career with an audit, tax and advisory firm. We feel that on-the-job experiences are some of the best forms of professional development.

You will be provided with a team of people that will serve as a resource for your growth and development during your internship. They will also provide you with the tools to manage your career.

At the beginning of your internship you will set goals and to help you assess how you measure against your goals, you will receive formal
feedback from your performance manager. This process will help you identify strengths and areas for improvement. You will also be assigned a mentor who will serve as a personal, professional and social resource during your internship.
