Accounting Internship Testimonial from Lawson

Accounting intern Lawson from the University of Sydney.

“The internship is currently going well, I really like it and I am truly grateful for this opportunity. I was exposed to a lot of knowledge and skills. The internship has broadened my horizons and has helped me with my growth as an accountant. I also like the internship’s working environment and my colleagues are all very friendly and professional. I can rely on them whenever I need help or assistance.As an accounting intern, my main tasks include managing data entries, bookkeeping, checking invoices in the accounting system using Xero and MYOB softwares, and communicating with stakeholders.

Through this internship, I gained valuable experience in the accounting world. I even learned some accounting techniques from the team. I became more proficient in using Xero and MYOB softwares. Moreover, as I was immersed and exposed to communicating with clients, my English communication skills have also greatly improved.

I would suggest fellow students be prepared, make sure you prepare for your internship, as much as possible I suggest you take it during your semester break. This way you can allot more time and effort. Maintain a proactive and positive attitude during their internship. Don’t be shy and ask questions. And embrace all the learning opportunities.”
