In Internal Audit, I felt as though my work was valued and useful to not only the Audit department, but to Discover as a whole. I was able to see the entire progression of an audit - planning, fieldwork, and reporting. I had a wonderful mentor who provided me the correct training in order to complete my internship successfully. I enjoyed the different events for the interns, i.e. Lunch and Learns with executive management and volunteer events, as well as events that allowed us to explore downtown Chicago.
I honestly don't have any cons to the internship. It was a great learning experience that I would recommend to anyone.
