I was involved in assisting the Tax accountants to prepare the audit schedules as it was the start of the final audit.
Later I was given the responsibility to prepare the VAT returns for the French entities. I held this responsibility for more than 4 months.A bit about your intenrship interview
A basic accounting knowledge, MS Excel related questions and questions related to personal goals and objectives.What did you learn?
Nothing is given on a silver platter when you are working at a large organization. To develop an understanding of the organization required extensive research, self-study, discussion with colleagues and team members. I am confident enough to be able to explain the general structure of the entire organization to someone who is new.
My skills in MS Excel improved considerably and I enhanced my communication skills as much of my time was spent sending emails to different geomarkets across the globe.Was your supervisor supportive?
I was lucky to have a direct manager who was willing to assist me whenever I faced any issue. If not directly, he would sometimes monitor my progress indirectly and give me feedback on it. He felt confident enough to assign me a project during the last few days of my internship that helped to improve the processes in the team.What could be improved? What could you have done better?
A structured internship program should be introduced by allowing the interns to rotate to different functions e.g. Management accounting, Treasury, Tax.Advice for future interns?
MS EXCEL!! Be fast, be good with formulas like vlookup, sumif.
