Houghton Student Participates in Tax Internship

December 5, 2023

In the Summer of 2022, Nathan Versari ‘23 earned an accounting position at KPMG after excelling in a tax internship over the same summer.

During his internship, Versari filed taxes for major corporations and partnerships. With each client came the opportunity to work with professionals in the field as he analyzed tax forms and created a list of questions in case his clients needed to provide any additional information.

“It’s detective work to figure out what you need to ask the client to provide … You have to work with numbers to figure that out … It’s interesting.”

Director of Vocation and Calling, Rachel Wright, helped Versari identify the internship and conducted mock interviews to practice for his KPMG interview.  Wright stated, “I was excited to learn that he had the opportunity to be a tax intern at KPMG. Other students have had the opportunity to complete internships at other Big Four firms as well.”

Houghton is connected to KPMG through the Handshake career services platform. With Handshake as a resource, students of various majors have found the experiences they need to prepare for their future careers. “I would’ve never have tried to apply to somewhere like [KPMG] if it wasn’t for Houghton,” said Nathan Versari.

Handshake is only one of Houghton’s numerous resources available to its students. At the Center for Student Success, students have the opportunity to receive a broad range of support, including extensive peer-tutoring, counseling, career guidance and more.
