Intern Insights: Goals and Aspirations

By: Jordan Zimmerman

​I am currently attending Saginaw Valley State University and the first time I heard about GreenStone was at an internship fair on campus. The staff member I met really sold me on joining the GreenStone team and this internship has far exceeded my expectations!

I am excited to say that I will be graduating December 2017 with a degree in accounting and a minor in finance. This type of degree can lead you to many different careers. From audit to tax to corporate accounting, there are a variety of pathways. As a college junior, I had no idea which road was for me. I have always known that I wanted a career in the business field and I was sold on accounting after I took my first college course. 

Since I started my first internship in January, GreenStone has given me knowledge in a wide array of fields. I have acquired the skills to complete bookkeeping and payroll duties for various types of businesses, learned tax reforms, and enhanced my office capabilities. Part of the culture at GreenStone is to get involved with customers and the community. I have been able to visit two separate dairy farms, as well as help clerk a livestock auction at a local county fair.​

One of the best things about being a part of GreenStone is the people. During my internship, I have had the privilege of working at a branch and also at the headquarters in East Lansing. In both offices, and any of the locations I visited, everyone is kind, accepting and willing to help.  

To anyone interested in an opportunity at GreenStone, I would strongly encourage them to pursue it! The experience and vast resources available have not only helped me to improve as a hopeful accountant, but also as a person.

Jordan Zimmerman is a tax and accounting intern with GreenStone Farm Credit Services.
