In their own words
"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!"
