Introduction

Internship is a proactive preparation of accountancy students for future career
possibilities whether in public practice, commerce & industry, government or academe.
The preliminary experience gained is a valuable qualification in applying for jobs as
fresh graduates. On-the-job training is an avenue for application and enrichment of the
acquired knowledge in accounting and auditing subjects learned. Furthermore,
students develop a new perspective in life through actual involvement within the
working environment.

Duration of the Internship and Assessment
of Gained Knowledge

In preparation for the final year of the accountancy program, the fourth year
students were required to accomplish a 240-hour accounting internship for the summer
semester of year 2014. The trainee, Jerremiah Josh R. Rementilla has satisfactorily
completed the training at Microbase Motorbike Corporation from April 23 to May 30,
2014 during working days of Monday to Saturdays with working hours of 8:00 AM to
5:00 PM. Substantial knowledge is gained through exposure to the different functions
within the accounting department. High-volume transactions are simplified in a
modern approach using accounting softwares thus the intern experienced
contemporary learning within the company.

Environment Provided by the Company

Evaluation of the Experience

and its Impact on the Career Goal

The internship provided by Microbase Motorbike Corporation is a holistic
experience for the trainee. Modern application of knowledge learned in classrooms to
the actual workplace demonstrated possibilities of acquiring more skills in accounting.
The trainee completed tasks through combining methods derived from instruction by
the mentors and own techniques progressively learned. Active involvement with the
employees and other trainees resulted in enhanced interpersonal skills.
Evaluation of the Accountancy Program
And How Formal Education and Work
Experience Interrelate

The accountancy program of Cavite State University is highly adequate to
ensure the preparation of students for internship. Performance on tasks relied on the
capability of the trainee to integrate accounting knowledge into the actual workplace.
Formal education and work experience are two different lines that intersect halfway.
The accountancy program has a conventional approach for consistency and
standardized learning. On the other hand, workplace environments have flexible and
modern approaches. Theories and principles in accounting interrelate formal education
and working experience. However, innovations in technology simplify workspace tasks
to minimize manual effort. Both have the same substance but different form.
Advancement in technology causes differentiation between formal education and work
7

experience but internship serves the purpose of providing students with training to fill
the gap.
