Our Internal Auditor Interns are part of a close family we call the Nestlé Market Audit (NMA) group. NMA is a shared service across all Nestlé business units, which means they audit Purina, but also every other Nestlé operating company in the United States, Canada and Mexico. This makes for fascinating experiences – reviewing dry dog food production one audit and pizza the next. You'll work cross-functionally for 10-12 weeks during the summer to provide management support, conduct fraud investigations, drive continuous improvement for current business processes and support external auditors with the overall audit of year-end financial statements.

Our interns travel up to 50% of the time, and because of this, they accrue deep knowledge of the business very quickly. This makes them rare and valuable assets who intimately understand and experience every aspect and area of both the Purina business and greater Nestlé. With this deep knowledge, we empower our interns to join the organization immediately upon graduation on a full-time basis. Internal auditing is a career of constant learning, where each new audit raises unique challenges. So, we commit to developing you in every way every day so you're prepared for your next audit experience or your next big career move.

We're a global organization known widely as a 'Best Place to Work'. Our culture continuously dares us to Stand Taller and ask "what's next?" Are you up to the dare?
