Summary of Internship
At Woloshen and Herman CPA, a smaller private accounting firm located near Union Square, a student intern learns a lot about the accounting world. You first start out learning the basics by handling and filing different folders such as payroll, 1040s, and corporate. Then you move on to various different tasks such as inputting client data and recording client expenses. Once this work is completed, you then package actual tax returns that are going to be sent to clients and the IRS. This can be somewhat intimidating because these are actual Federal documents and if you make even the smallest mistake there can be serious repercussions. However, after you get passed the initial nervousness it starts to be pretty easy. These various tasks teach a student the importance of responsibility and meticulous work. One also learns that the finer details are what sets an average company apart from a great company. A student can certainly benefit from all this practice and begin to build their knowledge of the accounting world. All of these aspects make for a truly great and educational internship, and being in the hustle and bustle of New York City only adds to the experience.
