Meet some of our recent interns
Mount Allison places interns in a variety of private and public organizations in the Maritimes, across Canada, and around the world.

We also award Reisman Internships to student entrepreneurs starting a for-profit business or a social initiative. (Check out the video featuring our 2017 Reisman winners!)


Renee SavoyRenee Savoy
Energy company

“I learned a lot about corporate tax, as well as how real accounting systems work in an organization. It gave me the chance to apply things I had learned in class to actual financial statements and tax returns. Spending the summer working in an environment that directly relates to what I am studying in school helped me ensure that I wanted to pursue my CPA after graduation and also was a great example to draw from during the CPA interview process!”


Eddie JiangEddie Jiang
Wealth management firm

“I worked with the largest net worth client base in Atlantic Canada, and had access to powerful software terminals, cohesive research, and refined insight from some of the top analysts at the firm and  large investment banks. As a result, I’ve acquired valuable connections, mentoring, and a wealth of practical knowledge and experience as a complement to my classroom education.”

“From my internship, I gained clarity on my future career path. I was able to learn from all of the various departments and be involved with many different tasks, to see what I might be interested in pursuing as a future career. It was a great experience being able to apply my skills that I have learned at Mount A to such a fast-paced environment, as well as gaining new valuable skills that will be helpful when entering the workforce after graduation.”

Professional services firm

“This internship has been very valuable to me as I got the chance to see the inner workings of an accounting firm and it gave me the opportunity to confirm that this was what I really wanted to do as a career. I also got the opportunity to learn about the CPA program from people who are currently in the program or have just recently finished it.”

 

 

Daniel ComfortDaniel Comfort
Professional services firm

“The Organizations 101 program helped me to profit and learn more from my internship than if I was doing it without support. The meetings and self-reflections allowed me to learn about myself and be a more productive worker as an intern. All in all, the program was eye-opening, enjoyable, and valuable.”
