I would go to the job site and help clients who came in to enter their taxes into our tax software. I learned how to interpret tax forms sort the relevant and irrelevant information. There were supervisors who reviewed all of the volunteers' work to make sure that no mistakes were sent to the IRS. It was hard to stay alert through all the periods when there were no clients and to be ready for when a whole bunch of clients came in. Working with people from all walks of life and hearing their stories.
