Internal Audit and Financial Advisory Process Intern – Summer 2014

Over the past summer, I had to privilege to work for Protiviti, a “global business consulting and internal audit [company]…specializing in risk, advisory and transaction services.” As an Internal Audit and Financial Advisory Process Intern, I worked with a team of consultants to test multiple clients’ internal controls. While interning with the company, my responsibilities included:

  • Observe client interviews
  • Create memos based on information from interviews
  • Testing controls
  • Choosing samples for testing
  • Creating process narratives

I worked regularly with different software including:

  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Visio
  • Adobe Acrobat
  •  Sharepoint

Most of my time spent at the internship was on client sites. I gained experience in client interaction and communicating with different types of people.

I learned a lot during my time as an intern with Protiviti. The following are some of the lessons I learned:

  • Communication is critical
  •  If you don’t understand something, ask someone!
  •  Improved business writing skills
  •  What internal controls are and how they help a company succeed
  •  testing internal controls
  • How to risks associated with bad or out-of-date internal controls
