What do you mean by giving you problems? One more good reason to stay. Learn how to deal with “problems” there, because BiG4 aren’t particularly known for not having problems. Learn some soft skills there.

Well going by the background part of you question, I’m assuming you’re talking about different firms. Yes, your background check will show the period of time you worked there (internship), nothing more, but if your offer was given in consideration of your internship experience, then it may be a problem. Or at least you me owe them an explanation. My suggestion, do not leave the internship, unless you have a really good reason for it, and learn as much as you can. It will give you a head start at the next firm. Also, you don’t want to burn that bridge with the internship firm.

I’m confused at what you’re asking? Like are you currently interning for a firm who has given you a full time offer? Are you interning for a different firm? Are you actively interning or just waiting for an upcoming internship? And why wouldn’t you just disclose an internship?

To clear up things, I currently have an internship with a different firm in industry. I have accepted an offer with BIG 4 for next fall of 2022. The current internship is not giving me an experience in my field and has just been causing problems. I would like to leave now, since I have an offer accepted.

And by this I mean my B4 internship was 10 weeks but I have a friend who “interned” at a kid tier and the internship was just basically a part time job.

Nature of the internship - is this a formal program or are you cheap hourly labor? In the recruiting process, did you convey to the Big4 that you’ll be interning at your current spot for a specific period of time? (E.g. through graduation?) What’s the nature of the problems mentioned? If a position is occupying your time and you need to focus on non-work things that’s one thing, if it’s you are struggling with core tasks you should continue to develop.

A background check asks the start and end date of employment and HR validates your business title and dates that align to your application, that’s it. So if you say you are an intern from x to y, that’s what they are going to confirm. The only other question they may ask is if you are eligible for rehire or not
