Summer 2022 Audit Internship Program
The Comptroller of the Treasury's Audit Internship Program is a 10-week paid educational and experiential learning opportunity offering undergraduate and graduate students a chance to witness and participate in the audit operations of the Office. The internships are within the Divisions of State Audit, Local Government Audit, and Investigations.
The Audit Internship Program will take place from June 6 - August 12, 2022 and is designed to be both professionally and academically beneficial. Interns are provided with hands-on, practical experience in governmental auditing.
Our application window for Summer 2022 intern opportunities has closed. We will begin contacting students at the end of October to schedule interviews during the month of November. Since we host interns in several areas of the Tennessee, we have created four postings, so that candidates my apply to the area of the state in which they are most interested. If you are interested in more than one area, you will only need to apply one time; there will be an opportunity in the application for you to indicate if you are open to multiple areas.
