Anna Joens, Class of 2010
My internship experience was completed in the accounting department at MetaBank in Sioux Falls. It provided me with knowledge of private sector accounting practices, along with an understanding of banking practices. I worked with a variety of departments to reconcile specific accounts with the general ledger, including the Federal Reserve Bank account, the teller cash accounts, and the Wells Fargo accounts. This gave me inside knowledge about how the banking system works and real life experience in a highly regulated industry. They were very willing to work with my class schedule and they had a very positive working environment. I would recommend this internship to any accounting or finance major who is interested in private accounting or is curious about the banking industry.
