Leder Student Avigail is Learning Accounting Skills at her Summer Internship
Fourth-year Leder Business Student Avigail Dubal, a former adjunct English instructor at College of the Marshall Islands, Majuro, is spending her summer as an intern at the People’s Church in Edmonton. Located on 96 Ave and 156 Street, this church began in 1967, and recently celebrated its 50 anniversary.
As an intern, Avigail works alongside the church bookkeeper processing weekly donations, preparing bank deposits, processing account reconciliations, and compiling month-end reports.
With aspirations to become an accountant, this experience is providing Avigail the opportunity to see the full monthly cycle of accounts payable and receivable, and to be actively involved in ensuring the accuracy of all transactions. Using PowerChurch software requires focused attention to detail for the church’s accounts and for taxation purposes. Additionally, Avigail processes donations made by cheque, cash, and on-line payment service.
Avigail was surprised by how much there is to learn about QuickBooks and how quickly the day passes working with exceptionally nice people.
