Dear All, my name is Venus and I work for Sumitomo Electric International (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (SEIS).
SEIS started its CSR activities last year. As part of the activities, we invite Japanese junior high school students to our company for one-day occupational experience. This gives the students practical experience of working at a company.
On October 27th, a 14 years old student arrived at our company at 9 o’clock in the morning. After a short orientation about the company’s business operations and a brief overview of what each department does, he was assigned to the Accounting Department, where I work. First, our boss explained major accounting terms and duties of our department. Then, my two colleagues and I gave him practical guidance in turn. We showed him our daily tasks such as data entry using accounting software, dealing with checks and telegraphic transfers, and issuance of receipts and payment vouchers. As each of us used different types of accounting software, he could learn three different ways to do similar work.
Eight hours were too short to see everything at our work site, however, we hope he enjoyed the working experience and gained some knowledge on accounting terms and skills. I also hope that his memory at our company will last long with the happy photos taken at the end of the program with us, the three “o-nee-san” (big sisters in Japanese) who enjoyed this CSR activity.
▲ We enjoyed working with him!
