The Deloitte & Touche LLP internship provides an introduction to audit. Throughout the program, participants will focus on issues shaping and affecting the profession today as well as topics related to their own career development. Counseling is another aspect of the Internship Program. At the end of each engagement, interns will have the opportunity to review their performance with management. Additionally, staff will serve as “counselors” to this year’s intern group. Counselors serve as a vital source of information and advice as well as participating in many of the social activities planned for the interns throughout their internship.
