They are responsible for updating the database, and preparing regular reports to share with the company.
Auditing is an essential part of the finance world, and is extremely important for every business. Interns learn about the process of ensuring that financial statements are accurately representing the business’ financial situation. They learn about the audit process, different types of audits, and become familiar with operating practices in their industry.
Interns learn about both drafting and evaluating budget proposals. They learn how to use financial data to determine the correct amount of money to allocate to specific areas of a business, and how to evaluate an organization’s short and long-term needs. The experience conducting cost-benefit analysis and utilizing data to make decisions is incredibly valuable.
