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 six weeks, 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 a celebration of your first career milestone with EY, our International Intern Leadership Conference (IILC) in Orlando, Florida. Here you’ll join approximately 3,400 of your fellow interns from around the world to further your development through workshops and innovative team-building activities, as well as the opportunity to hear from leaders and network with peers. 

To learn more, visit your school’s career services office and/or online careers portal to learn more about the opportunities available for students and to find out the next time we’ll be on your campus.

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.
