How did you find out about this internship?
I found this internship on the internship and job search engine on Indeed.com.
What did you do as an intern at this organization?
I worked with the accountant of the company. I had to take invoices from the company and put them on record in the database that we were using. Also, I had to write checks and give them to the company owner to sign. I would then have to mail these checks. Dates were very important as payments had to be made on time.
What did you find most rewarding in your internship?
The many connections I made within that job were very rewarding. I also got the opportunity to work in a professional environment which was very new to me. This experience made me confident about doing other internships and jobs.
If another student at TU was interested in your internship next year, what skills would you recommend they develop in the coming semesters to prepare?
Having an open mind is crucial. This job did not need a solid background in accounting. But it might have been helpful. Also, even if there seems like there is nothing to do, find something to do. Enjoy the experience and remember all of the lessons learned from the internship.
