Currently enrolled in the Commerce program at McMaster University, specializing in accounting, Kelvin attended KPMG campus recruitment events and recruiting events hosted in Toronto, ON, by the GTA offices, including Ace the Case and Executive Look. At these events, he learned more about KPMG and the many opportunities that would allow him to grow his career. He was attracted to the freedom of exploring different career directions by moving between practices during his rotational internship. He was also interested in the professional development and learning opportunities that KPMG provides, which would allow him to earn his CA designation, grow his career and reach his full potential.
Kelvin’s non-audit rotation was spent in Campus Recruiting as a liaison between KPMG and interested students, whose shoes he was in just a year ago!
In this role, he organized campus recruiting events where he shared his experiences with students and provided helpful information about the recruitment process. Another exciting program he helped organize and participate in was the Experience Community Leadership events. At these events, students were invited to visit KPMG’s GTA offices, meet employees and learn about and participate in KPMG’s volunteer programs with local community partners for a fun and unique volunteer experience. After work, Kelvin turned off his laptop, picked up a Frisbee and headed to the park to help organize the intern Ultimate Frisbee tournaments.
“I enjoyed sharing my own experiences as well as my reasons for choosing KPMG with students coming in a year after me, which gave them a perspective they could relate to,” says Kelvin, who is currently finishing the summer in Consumer Markets for his audit rotation. “Being on the other side of the recruitment process was a very rewarding experience.”
