Performance audit interns typically join our team for 12 – 15 weeks, working 20 – 40 hours per week, starting in August or September. As an intern on our team, you will help conduct current performance audits and follow up on previously issued audit reports of state agencies and programs. Under a lead auditor’s supervision, you will gather information and help identify areas of inquiry for your audit, perform audit procedures to obtain evidence, prepare well-documented work papers, develop findings and appropriate recommendations for improvement, and evaluate state agency efforts to implement recommendations made in audit reports. In addition, you will verbally communicate the results of your work and draft written audit findings that meet professional and office standards for clarity and completeness. We will work with you to select a schedule within normal business hours that works best with your class schedule.
