Vacasa

International Accounting Intern

June 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

I was able to gain an experience like none other. I had a full time internship, and now I’m currently a part-time Accounting Coordinator! I couldn’t have asked for a better company to accommodate the need for flexibility since I am still a full time student. I highly recommend Vacasa.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been able to perform more Audit and Tax type work.

Advice

I would always encourage someone to ask questions. They don’t expect you to know everything on day one, so don’t be afraid to ask if you’re unsure!

International Accounting Intern

August 2018 • Boise, ID

What I liked

Vacasa has an excellent culture that finds the balance between work and external activities (Such as classes or clubs). If you are interested in a rapid growth company with a dynamic work environment, Vacasa is great.

What I wish was different

With them being a younger company, there still is a lack of structure at times. Additionally, the amount of work varies quite extensively from week to week. This can be expected with many accounting positions though.

Advice

An awesome internship for students with busy schedules!

Portfolio Analytics Intern

June - August 2018 • Portland, OR

What I liked

A relatively laid back and fun place to work for the summer, great for an early internship experience in analytics or for those who are interested in the tech startup scene. As an intern, you were given the opportunity to work on impactful projects from the start and were responsible for carrying out time sensitive tasks.

What I wish was different

Nothing comes to mind about the internship itself, but the pre-onboarding process could have been more involved.

Advice

Practice the tools you want to learn to use; it is far more rewarding learning a new language/program by practicing on real company data than on classroom datasets.
