As an intern at Source One, I provided spend analysis insights for clients by categorizing and analyzing expenditures from disparate data sources such as general ledgers, p-cards, and purchase orders. Additionally, I assisted in developing spent analysis tools for the Data Science team by compiling and cleaning vendor data. Lastly, I analyzed and presented client expenditures with the project management office and spend analysis team lead.
This was one of my favorite internships by far as it gave me the chance to extend my knowledge on data spend and analysis. I was able to use and apply several things I learned in my MIS classes such as advanced Excel skills, organizing big amounts of data in a comprehendible list of information, and provide an analysis based on that list. Especially since data analyst jobs are the ones that interest me the most and I hope to work in a position like that one day, I feel like this internship provided me with valuable experience that I can carry into future job opportunities.
