EY Global Recruiting Leader


You want an internship that’s more than a line on a resume. You want an experience, a challenge and a launch pad for lifelong relationships and career growth. EY is just the place to find it.

Over the course of your summer or winter internship, you’ll work alongside our professionals throughout our global organization. And to help you hit the ground running, your first week is dedicated to on-the-job training, coaching and technology onboarding.

Then, 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 real 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 effective writing, presenting and networking. Throughout your journey, a counselor assigned to you will provide regular feedback and guidance and will be responsible, along with your peer advisor or mentor, for helping you develop the skills you need to succeed.

Your exceptional internship experience will culminate with Futures 2020, 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.

Discover EY

How can undiscovered opportunities help you discover your best self?

Discover EY is more than just a seminar or a series of classes — it’s an interactive experience of discovery that brings you and more than 140 of the best, brightest and most diverse college students nationwide together. You’ll experience exceptional career possibilities among our service lines, participate in hands-on learning activities, network with current and future EY professionals — and have fun!

This exciting program is open to underrepresented minority (self-identify as Black, Hispanic or Native American) students who are three or more years from graduation – typically freshmen or sophomores who intend to pursue a degree in Accounting, technology-related majors (Analytics, Computer Science, etc.), Finance, Economics, Math, Statistics or a related subject.

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.
