Deloitte: More than just accounting and consulting
By Daniel Audisho
Digital Marketing Summer Student | Marketing and Sales Support
If you asked me what came to mind when I heard the name “Deloitte” a year ago, I probably would have said accounting and consulting, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn about the other opportunities that exist at the firm. Deloitte Management Services, or DMS for short, is the internal-facing services group of the firm. That’s right – there’s more to Deloitte than just accounting and consulting.
This past summer, I had the privilege of completing a summer internship within DMS, on the Digital Marketing team. In my role, I provided subject matter expertise on digital solutions and marketing strategies to our national marketing teams, developed digital content workflows, and oversaw projects and updates for our website, Deloitte.ca. Throughout my internship, I gained valuable skills and experience that solidified my interest in a marketing career.
And it’s not just marketing; Deloitte hires many students in a variety of fields. The diversity of Deloitte’s summer student workforce allowed me to build relationships with many unique personalities. This meant that not only did I gain experience in my field of marketing, I gained perspective on what was happening in other parts of the business and insight into other career options. For example, I learned about how the company implements new information systems – a personal interest of mine – from a student working in that field.
Here are some of the students I worked with and what they did at Deloitte:
