I assist with making operations run smoothly, by processing employee expenses, paying invoices, and journalizing/reconciling accounts. The ideology of the company is what first drew me in when, from when I started volunteering with them in the 2015 tax season. Their mission aligns perfectly with my ideology, which makes it that much easier to work for them.
The job has its challenges, such as the typical deadlines to pay invoices and vendors. We get some duplicate invoices that are confusing; some vendors like to get paid electronically rather than with paper checks; there is an urgency to month-end and year-end processes. Revamping the filing system helped. Also, letting my coworkers know exactly what I need is essential.
