Summary of Internship

As an intern at Citi, some of my tasks included: filing, updating employee records, analyzing/reporting data, and compiling important materials for the employee manual. Although I interned in the Human Resources Department, I still learned much about finance and being in the business world. Sometimes, I got to work with the Accounting Department and I learned a few techniques that apply to working with Microsoft Excel. These techniques were essential to producing data and reports. It was great having an internship at Citi because of the friendly working environment, challenging assignments, and unique work experience you leave with.
