More about Forage 

"Over the past few months, I was scheduled to complete an internship with KPMG Wollongong, however, the current conditions in Sydney made that impossible.

Alternatively, I have had the opportunity to complete several Forage virtual internships, focusing on the accounting and financial sectors which have provided me insight into various daily activities conducted in daily business processes. "
