Miriam Fung Class of 2017, BCom in Accountancy
Finance Intern, Ovolo Hotels

I worked as a summer intern at Ovolo, which is a stylish boutique hotel located in Hong Kong. I was attracted to this special work environment at Ovolo because there is a unique corporate culture that challenges conventional thinking. During my internship, I was responsible for handling daily accounting work such as bank reconciliation, stock-taking, handling invoices and settling payments. I learnt that patience is the key to becoming successful in the accounting industry especially when we have to deal with a lot of data for long periods of time. Furthermore, I suggest students do more research on the developments of the industry and discover the job requirements and qualities of people that prospective employers look for in order to land their dream jobs.
