I'm curious folks. Why did you accept your internship offers when most of you hate auditing so much now? I didn't intern before I started and feel I would never have joined if I interned.

Because as a summer intern you don't do jack. They ended the internship with a free to Disney world. Drank gallons of the Kool-aid.

I didn't intern either - was hired on full time. Wish the Big 4s offered rotational programs to figure out what we like.

I never interned but the intern I had for the spring quarter actually loved it and is coming full time in fall.. Lol.. We were on a tight deadlines with no sleep and he was a baller.. But then again they don't have that much stress as much as we do. Plus as a college student, you honestly just want a full time offer and starting with big four early on looks great on your resume.

Firms are focusing more and more on the intern experience. As a student they lure you in with expensive meals, great pay etc. however now that I'm on full time I still enjoy my job..... For now

I agree with EY1 as a first year that also interned I accepted my offer because 1. I didn't do anything as an intern and I got a free trip to Texas out of it. 2. I was just happy to get a job offer before I even graduated unlike most of my friends that graduated and we're looking for work for months and even years after. But I do enjoy audit it's the hours that really bother me.

Also going into your senior year of college in not the greatest job market with a full time job got rid of a lot of stress. The fear of being unemployed post college was way too real.

I actually don't like the job itself because of its perspective. I want myself to be able to tell the client how to grow the business instead of how we can audit AR more throughly.

Because we were getting paid hourly with overtime. It was glorious. Also you do the work with really zero stress of getting it right or finishing on time. Come in, play around for 10 weeks, get fat checks, and then you're done.

I loved audit during my internship and still do. I just wish there were less work at times...

I also didn't intern and don't understand how any of them sign their offers. I also don't understand how any of my coworkers continue to enjoy their jobs, but that's their business, I guess. Hating your job isn't exclusive to public accounting, but if you hate your job, I don't understand why you would choose to stay, assuming that you have other options. I would rather leave for the possibility of liking my job than stay in public accounting and definitely keep hating it.

Yep - agreed. Love it but it's the hours not the actual job.

@OP you should consider internal audit (EY Risk Advisory) or consulting if that's what you want. It gets better the more experience you have though
