Time flies. My one academic –year internship is coming to an end. Most of my classmates stay in the school, but I choose to enter the society and experience the different life to a student and I have a great memory here.
At the beginning, I did not have a certain work. The section supervisor arranged me to learn with my colleagues. In the period of this time, I had learned sales process, commodity tax, materials account, logistic account and expense account. I also learned the accounting concept and the logic of accounting with reviewing the vouchers every month. At first, when I was reviewing the vouchers, I just put them into order and packed them into box. However, when I learned much more things from my colleagues, I felt I can realize the concept much. When I found something that I did not understand, I would ask my colleagues and they were always patient to teach me. Afterwards, I also started to analyze the financial report and energy expense. I have to be sure that all the amount change reasonably. If the change is not in logic, I had to ask the colleagues from other concerning department. For financial statement analysis, I need to ask the accountant from subsidiary company in china on phone because of some different regulations and accounting methods so how to express your questions clearly was important. Therefore, it was also a good chance to train my expression ability
In addition to accounting knowledge, I think participate other activity is also a train. For example, we will hold an educational course every year. Before the course, we need to go to the class and do preparation, like setting the computer, testing the microphone, arranging tables and chairs and preparing tea or coffee for the lecturer and so on. Doing all these things are easy, but they are quite important. If some part of the activity can’t be done well, It won’t be perfect. Therefore, to be sure that all things are prepared well, beforehand planation is necessary. It’s one of important ability in career.
Broadening my social network is also one of the benefits I get in this period. I was a introvert person before and not good at interact with people. I was always waiting for other people to come to me then I would try to know them. Besides, every time when I face an occasion with many people, I would get nervous easily. To overcome this problem, I tried to join some group and meet people in school. After coming to CST, I become active and talkative because I meet more and more people. I am willing to make new friends. To be more close to my coworkers, I went to play badminton with my colleagues after work and chat with them during the break time. Then I also make more friends from other department, like manufacturing department, R&D department and sales department. When I want to know something different from accounting, like the manufacturing process of tire or the job about sales, I can go to ask them for guidance. I also join an English study group held by sales department. We will get together every Tuesday night and there will a host to lead us to discuss interesting topic. We will share our own experience and thoughts to each other in English. Join this group, I can enhance my English speaking ability and the most important part is that I make more friends as well.
All these things I have in the internship were so unforgettable to me. I am sure that it is the most meaningful year in my college life.
