Ashley Halinka, a Finance major at Arizona State University, recently completed an internship with Honeywell Aerospace in Phoenix, Arizona with our Finance team.

Internship Details

Ashley’s internship was project-based. The main project’s goal was to drive an increase in “touchless” reporting between the Finance Leadership Team and Aerospace Leadership Team. She designed and managed a process to convert static PDF reports emailed monthly to interactive dashboards accessible via the intranet at any time.

Her secondary project involved building an interactive Webi report in Business Objects 4 to summarize daily past due revenue. While the report provides high-level information, it also provides drill-down features to allow for a more detailed analysis. The goal of the report is to move towards contemporary finance through touchless reporting.

Advice for Future Interns

When asked about advice to future interns, Ashley encourages, “Do not be afraid to ask questions. Interns in this program have a strong network of colleagues around them who are willing and able to provide assistance. Use this network to learn as much as possible about Honeywell and how you can make an impact during your internship.”

By doing more of these, you can get a lot of valuable experiences, which will be extremely useful in the future.”
