Summary of Internship

My expectation of my internship was to gain a general understanding of the accounting field as it pertains to the real estate industry. At the Kamson Corporation I was allowed to explore many aspects of the field. I was introduced to systems such as Prosystem Engagement Software, a Microsoft Excel based program that creates financial statements and notes, Lotus Approach and Lotus 1-2-3, and IBS. I was also taught how to perform bank reconciliations and rent reconciliations as well. I took pride in preparing various budgets for many properties that was then transferred to Engagement.
