I pursued a job in public accounting because of the travelling opportunities, global reach exposure, and the well-rounded work experience opportunities such as internal, external, and IT auditing. Further, because of PwC's digital upskilling initiatives, I was able to groom my technical skills in data software.

When it came to looking for a job for myself I always knew that I wanted to do something with business. Once you have found your general idea of what you want to do, you have all of college to experiment. I started as a Finance major and came to see that Accounting was a much more group involved job. I like to collaborate with co-workers and clients on a daily basis. You want to be able to enjoy your profession and I am able to work daily on things that interest me and work with others. Like I said, find your general idea and explore! Don't be afraid to take a minor you are interested in (I chose real estate). Take classes, be outgoing, don't just glide by in college. Enjoy all of it!

I kind of fell into compliance because sometimes you start off in one area and then wind up in another. For me, I've always been in financial services but I started out in customer service by processing paperwork and then later answering the 800 number from investors saving for their retirement. After doing that for many years I switched over to compliance because I wanted a change. Wage was a factor, and it still is, but it wasn't the only thing that had an impact on my decision.
