Where do you start if you want to change the world? You start right here with an internship at EY. From the moment you join us as a summer or winter #EYIntern, you’ll begin building your skillset and expanding your mindset.

As part of one of our high-performing teams, you'll gain exposure to our business and our world-class clients. Under the guidance and coaching of our professionals, you’ll experience working on projects such as conducting internal control reviews on an audit, helping perform tax planning or even building a bot to help one of our teams work more efficiently.

You’ll also hone important skills, such as presenting and networking, while also learning about how to care for your physical, emotional, social and financial well-being. Throughout your internship, you’ll receive regular feedback, guidance and coaching from our professionals to help you develop the skills you need to succeed.

Your exceptional internship experience will culminate with Futures, a global EY milestone event that celebrates the now, next and beyond in your career journey. It’s yours to build. It’s all of ours to celebrate.

Global Student Experience

How can a four-week in internship create a world of opportunities? With international assignments in major cities across the globe, the Global Student Experience (GSE) allows interns to collaborate and build relationships with people of diverse backgrounds – both professionally and culturally. It begins in June in the intern’s home office. The intern then works in an EY member firm in a different country for four weeks, and finally returns to the home office to complete the internship.

You will first be required to accept an internship offer from one of our US offices. After you accept your offer, you'll be provided information about how to submit an application, which will include both a live and prerecorded video assessment. For more information, please reach out to your local EY campus recruiter.
