In their own words
“My internship at LAB was a valuable experience. I was able to work on multiple audits and gain an understanding of the different kinds of audits that LAB conducts. During the audits, I was able to perform testing, conduct interviews and complete workpapers. Additionally, the people at LAB made my internship experience that much better. Not only were they very knowledgeable and willing to answer any question I had, but they were also fun to be around. I would highly recommend an internship with LAB.”

"I had a great internship experience at LAB. Everyone I worked with was so nice, and all of the staff made it a priority to get to know each of the interns. During my internship I was able to work on two very different audits that gave me great real-life auditing experience. I was given responsibility for completing auditee interviews, and writing workpapers where I did both test of controls and substantive testing. The LAB office is located right on the square in Madison and it was a blast being able to work in downtown Madison! Overall, I would recommend this internship to anyone."
"My internship experience was better than I expected. I was able to work on sections of audits where I learned about computer networks and insurance claims. The people at the Bureau were also a pleasure to work with! I am glad my internship was at LAB!"

"This internship provided me with an extensive background into the workings of state agencies and gave me a great opportunity to experience auditing before even taking the class. I was given a lot of independence and responsibility on the job with guidance at every step. I had three opportunities for internships this summer and am so glad that I chose LAB!"
