In their own words

“My internship experience at LAB was very insightful and rewarding. I learned many valuable skills and was able to challenge myself in ways that will help me become a better professional in the future. The staff at LAB was very accepting and I always felt like I was a part of the team. I had a great internship and would highly recommend this to anyone.”
Josh, UW-Madison
Fall 2012 — Summer 2013
“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.”
Joseph, UW-Whitewater

"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."

"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!"
Ashley, UW-Madison

"Working for LAB over the summer was both challenging and rewarding. I was given a great deal of responsibility and I was able to face some unique audit issues.
