Making the right decision

Collin Phillips
Audit Intern

When I first began the process of looking for an internship, one aspect that I viewed as being important is looking for a firm with the right kind of people I would want to work with everyday. For me, I found everything I wanted in a firm and its people…. which is at PKM!

My journey to becoming an Audit Intern here all started last year when PKM hosted an etiquette dinner at Georgia Southern University. Immediately, I could tell that PKM wasn’t like other firms. The employees who attended the dinner were very fun, enthusiastic, and great personalities to match (which is typically not what you expect when you think of an accounting firm and its employees).

After being offered an internship with PKM and getting to know everyone at the firm better,  I discovered a fun loving culture where relationships are highly valued.  Whether it is working with a client or a fellow co-worker, everyone here is very helpful and actually cares about you as an individual. Accepting an internship with PKM is one of the best decisions I have made so far in my career path. There is a reason PKM has been recognized as one of the “Best Accounting Firms To Work For” 5 years in a row and I’m very grateful I get to experience first-hand what makes this firm a great working environment!
