Former Financial Reporting Intern at Voya Financial
over 1 year ago
For any intern, most companies know that although you've taken accounting courses, you probably know very little about what the job entails. There will be training and guidance. That being said, Voya (and really all companies hiring accounting interns) want someone that is quick, motivated to learn, and has strong communication skills. Voya wants someone who can take direction and then perform a task independently - that means take notes when someone is training you because you do not want to ask them a question about something they just said. Working in a professional setting is very different than working in a retail store or a restaurant, so be mindful of what you say and know your audience.
