Client service internships
Our interns don't sit in the back room
They work with client service teams on real business problems. Our internship program is designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to experience what it’s like to work in professional services as they take on roles similar to those of a full-time campus hire.
Internships with Deloitte take many forms. In summer, the internship lasts 8 to 10 weeks, and during the school year, they typically last up to a semester. Our interns work as part of a client service team in one of our businesses: Deloitte & Touche LLP, Deloitte Consulting LLP, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory, or Deloitte Tax LLP.
1. Client work
Throughout the course of the internship, interns are assigned to one or more client projects where they are responsible for a particular part of a client deliverable(s). Through interactions with the project team, interns will receive mentorship and support to help their success on the engagement.

2. Learning, networking and the National Internship Conference
Beyond exposure to “real life” projects, the program also delivers a variety of national and local learning and networking events.
Many interns receive training prior to joining a client engagement. In addition, throughout the internship there are ongoing learning events such as lunch and learns, industry/service line spotlights, and regularly scheduled training offerings designed to help our interns develop technical and client service skills. Additional social activities are planned throughout the internship period to provide opportunity to network with Deloitte professionals.
Our interns work with clients and Deloitte professionals who will show them the ropes. The interns will understand first-hand what a career with Deloitte is like.
Summer interns are also invited to a three day National Intern Conference during the summer months to meet Deloitte leadership and professionals, connect with fellow interns from other offices, and learn about Deloitte’s businesses and service areas.
3. Mentorship and Professional Development
Each intern is assigned a mentorship team, including a counselor and onboarding advisor, to help offer guidance throughout the experience. The counselor, typically a manager or senior manager, offers career guidance and feedback throughout the course of the internship. The onboarding advisor is a peer level “buddy” to help answer questions and offer insight into how to make the most of the internship experience.
Additional mentors, both formal and informal, are often typically identified during the internship. These mentor relationships typically carry over into the future and offer a great way to stay connected to Deloitte while back at school.
There will be formal goal-setting and evaluation processes throughout the internship. Some interns could receive a full-time offer at the conclusion of the internship program.
