Intern – Yes She Can, Inc!
“My New Job”, by Maki T.
Last Fall I was fortunate to obtain an unpaid internship at the business office of JCCA Westchester Campus. In January the internship was converted to a part time salaried position.
I am assisting staff members with some of the administrative tasks. I am filing invoices and packing slips, organizing folders for company vendors, and doing inventory of deliveries. I am not only creating work orders and purchase orders, but also entering information of employees into the emergency notification system. Some of my strengths are copying information directly from invoices to work orders and purchase orders. I believe I have been successful because I am supportive of my colleagues and supervisors.
I am trying to work with minimal assistance from my colleagues and supervisors because I know they are not always available for me. I am compulsive about completing tasks at once, but I am learning not to put unnecessary pressure on myself. I have received positive feedback about working efficiently and meeting deadlines.
I am building relationships with staff members, developing more self-confidence, realizing my own capabilities, accepting new challenges, and beginning to establish new goals for myself.
