How do I fit in?

I am applying for the role of "Audit Intern." This would fall under Audit and Assurance Services and would entail any of the specific functions listed above, as well as several others that were not introduced. Currently, my specific area of interest is audit. Audit is the on-site examination and analysis of financial reports to ensure compliance with requirements.

BDO is a company that goes beyond its daily accounting operations by valuing honest relationships with coworkers and clients, as well as promising to only deliver exceptional work. Because of this mentality, BDO has differentiated itself in an industry that proves hard to do so.
