Day to Day

An auditor will never experience a boring and routine day at work. Every day is different and it's filled with new challenges and projects that provide you with an opportunity to grow new skills at a rapid pace. My work is team-oriented and I'm constantly working in groups to execute on different objectives and goals. My days are filled with team meetings, presentations, and client-facing services, which allows me to take on great responsibilities and provides me with an opportunity to shine.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Join the accounting business fraternity on campus. This will provide you with an opportunity to meet Big 4 accounting firms before most people do. You can do upfront networking and meet many resources that will eventually interview you for an internship or career opportunity.
