Student Spotlight Intern

This week’s Student Spotlight Intern is Courtney Ripp. Courtney is MAcc student and she was a Business Tax Services Intern at KPMG. During her internship, she worked with upper-level management, created informational memos, filled out tax forms pertaining to trusts and estates, and completed partnership returns in the tax return system. Prior to attaining an internship offer, Courtney utilized the resume reviews, practice interviews, and booking rooms for interviews with the Business Career Center. During her internship, she applied a lot of the tips she learned in her BA 297 class! Courtney says, “I found the tips and reviews that other interns reported extremely helpful when it came to picking the right firm and going about day-to-day tasks at my internship. The events that took place in the atrium, through the Business Career Center, allowed me to connect with many associates at KPMG prior to my interview! Through networking with KPMG associates in the atrium, I was invited to many other KPMG events at Penn State and I was able to learn a lot about the culture and people at KPMG.”
