The PKM Intern Life

Alexis Hackman

Audit Intern

July 27, 2016

Before starting my internship at PKM I was nervous as well as excited. I had no idea what to expect nor did I have any idea what the work load would truly be like. I wasn’t looking forward to the commute into Atlanta coming from the metro Atlanta area. As the first day of my internship approached, I became more and more nervous. My friends and family continued to tell me not to worry and that I would enjoy the experience. Just after the first week of my internship, they were right: making the drive is well worth it! PKM truly treats you like family. Everyone in the firm (literally everyone) is extremely supportive and continues to tell you to reach out to them if you need any help.

Summer Accounting Internship

PKM’s summer internship is eight weeks long, and they do a very good job of diversifying the jobs you work on and the people you work with. Each week, interns work with a different staff group, a different in-charge and a different client. I am ending my third week of engagements and I have worked with 3 different teams. I like the way PKM incorporates this learning technique into its internship program. It has allowed me to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge about what the day to day life of an Auditor is really like. Overall, my internship experience has been much more than I could have ever imagined. If I could accept the internship opportunity again, I would say yes in a heartbeat!
