Jaylene will be working the ranks of tax and audit this summer. Last summer, she worked the social venture partners, audit, and marketing rotation. She believes KPMG makes a great employer because KPMG is flexible and backs up your personal goals. Jaylene is looking forward to auditing at the Stampede because she loves the Stampede and cherry lemonades.
Her favourite memory is yet to come because she has recently joined the summer interns after returning from a semester abroad in South Africa. She is proud of her ability to click and speak some Zulu. When she is not at KPMG, you can find her bike riding or drinking chai lattes.
KPMG is my perfect fit because the culture allows you to enjoy life both inside and outside KPMG. The people I have met at KPMG really challenge the ‘typical accountant stereotype’. I look forward to further challenging the stereotype over the next couple of years.

Over the summer Gloria had the opportunity to work in the Audit, Tax, and Marketing departments. She also had the privilege to volunteer for one week with Social Venture Partners.
