Finance Intern (Former Employee), Washington, DC – June 18, 2013
I would come into the office everyday at 8:30AM, and report to my supervisor to see what she needed me to do. A typical day usually consisted of me filing, and entering budgets into the database/adjusting workers compensation. My coworkers were wonderful to work with. They were all middle-aged, so I took away a lot from them.
