You will work closely with the service line partner to help compile client reports and deliverables. You’ll be able to apply your education in a hands-on, fast-paced learning environment, collaborate with associates and partners, and connect with a dedicated mentor throughout your internship.

How You Can Grow

You will learn about a wide range of technical concepts based on the unique tech stacks of each of our technology clients. You’ll gain exposure to a range of compliance frameworks, including SOC 2, HIPAA, and HITRUST.
