A NAF MEMBER PROGRAM 10 Weekly Journal Acceptable Internship Journal- Week 4 July 9-13 Name: Worker Bee School: East Forsyth High School Company: Dream Job Insurance Agency July 9- Day 15 This week on the job was pretty boring, considering I worked on the same project everyday. At least on Monday there was a celebration for all of the July Birthdays, and since mine is on the twelfth everyone sang happy birthday to me. Today I also was ask by my boss Anna, what my work schedule would be like for the rest of the summer, after I responded to her e-mail she asked it I would be interested in working some during the school year. This made me feel like I was doing a good job and that she had confidence in my abilities, even though I had to tell her no due to my extracurricular activities. As for work I continues on the January Cash clearing spreadsheets. July 10- Day 16 Today I was elated to have finished Januarys cash clearing only to find out that I had to start on December 2006. This made me wonder if the cash clearing spreads had ever been completed and how far I would have to go back. I was happy to find out that Transource didnt acquire their Fayetteville location until 2007 so from now on I would only have to do the spreads for five locations. To take a break I helped Margie file some of the invoices she had just cut checks for, luckily they were in alphabetical order so it made it a lot easier. By the end of the day I had finished the December 2006 Cash clearing. This month was easier because Scott sent me the spreadsheet as an Excel document so I could find the amounts faster using control F. July 11- Day 17 Today I continued with the Cash Clearing spreads, but for November I had to print them out because Kathy was busy with her own project. I wasnt hard I just had to copy and paste them from the AS400 to and Excel spread. This time I also decided to turn the entries red n the screen rather that to print them out and highlight. I thought it might save some time in the long run. This time I also decided to go though the CRVs by date instead of location. On the pervious months I felt I was wasting time by going though the months CRVs six times when I could cut it down to one.

A NAF MEMBER PROGRAM 21 Frequent Asked Questions The Finance Academy is a program for college bound students, interested in business. They take some basic business classes in addition to their college prep coursework during their 10th, 11th and 12th grade years. In the past we have tried to offer the students paid ($8 per hour) internships in the summer between their junior and senior years. Most students work 4 weeks for 20 hours a week; however some employers prefer a part time position, where students work 20 hours a week, for 4-6 weeks.
A NAF MEMBER PROGRAM 22 Frequent Asked Questions If YOU cant host an intern, would you like to make a donation? We use donated funds to allow students to work at approved non profits and still earn dollars. We have been able to provide between 3 and 5 paid internships to students for the last several summers at local non profits like Arts Council, Habitat for Humanity and Family Services.
