“I liked being able to finally get experience in a business related field as opposed to working labor jobs like I normally do during the summer. I was able to see what really goes on in a big firm, and it was interesting to work for a government entity. I was in charge of a number of things such as monitoring the accounts payable email, editing spreadsheets, and making sure all invoices were imported into the system. The most important thing I did, in my opinion, was looking over official financial statements for errors before the Chicago Park District sent the document for review by the SEC.”
