Meet Lexi Tamburello ’19 Accounting Intern at Dovetail Internet Technologies
Tell us about where you are interning and the kind of work you are doing.
I am interning at Dovetail Internet Technologies, a company located in Worcester that creates custom website solutions for businesses. At Dovetail, I work along-side the head accountant. I process account receivables and account payable, enter and analyze data in excel, and complete book-keeping tasks.
Give us an example of how you have applied your academic learnings to your internship?
Much of what I have learned in my accounting course has come to life in my internship. For example, I was able to understand first hand, rather than read in a textbook, how important a cash flow statement is.
What has surprised you about being an intern?
I was surprised how much I was able to learn in a summer long internship. Specifically, I was given tasks that were important and required responsibility. (ex. checks and contracts)
How did this experience influence or connect to your future career plans / goals?
From this experience, I have come to a greater understanding of what I want and what I do not want in my future career.
Any internship advice to pass on to other Holy Cross students?
Enter the internship with a positive attitude. Your experience is truly what you make it.
