How did you find your internship or full-time position?
My tax accounting class.
What were some of your daily job duties?
Interviewing people that come in for their tax returns and preparing said returns.
What did you like most about your position?
I like being able to help people, so allowing people to have a free tax return done is something I enjoy doing.
Did anything surprise you about the interviewing process or how you located your position?
Nothing was surprising other than that there was no interview. It was a first come first serve basis.
Reflecting on your overall experience, what activities /experiences were helpful in providing some direction about your future career path and goals?
I was able to talk with the people coming in for returns and communicate with my supervisors whenever I needed help; I learned that asking for help is not always a bad thing. We are dealing with real money and real lives.
Do you have any tips for other students that are considering an internship or seeking full-time employment?
Talk to as many people as you can. You have social media - use it!
