Summary of Internship

During my Senior Experience I worked at Penrose & Associates, and assisted Ms. Penrose in any way I can. I helped with the filing of different papers for different businesses that she works with. I also entered transactions from bank statements of clients. My work ranges from making copies, data entry, and filing. I learned to use QuickBooks, which included inputting client’s financial data, reconcile bank accounts, process and print checks and process invoices. I also learned different aspects of taxation. I was trained to use ATX tax software to prepare tax returns for businesses as well as individuals. I used tax forms such as 1040EZ, 1040A and 1040. I learned how to process payroll for small businesses. When I arrive in the morning, I meet with Ms. Penrose and Mr. Mitchell. Ms. Penrose will assign me various tasks that she wants to be completed.
