I work as a Privacy professional for a tech company, and I previously worked as a medical ethicist in academia. I made the change because I am very interested in how personal data are used and collected, and how laws are created in response to technology. I chose my current job because I want to be on the front lines of new technology, learning how what we create might impact communities and populations. Regulations, like privacy laws, are often developed in response to technology and new potential uses of our tools. The way that we develop, deploy and manage our technology directly influences how and why these tools might be regulated.
When I evaluate a role or position, I try to ensure there is a balance between how much I can learn and improve, how effective I can be in the role, and what opportunities exist for me to grow.
I accepted my current position because I am learning so much, there is lots of room for growth, and I am extremely good at it. These three things matter more to me than the initial pay, because a position that checks these three boxes sets you up for growth and promotion automatically. Play the long game! It's a great game. Best of luck!

I was always interested in Sales, but never had the opportunity until recently. There were so many aspects of Sales that interested in me. I love that every single day is different. When I come into work each morning, I have no idea who I'm going to speak with that day and I love the spontaneity of that. I like be able to utilize my customer service skills while communicating with customers and potential customers. I love being able to help people with whatever it is they need. Of course, the money is a huge plus.

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.

I didn't really know what I wanted to do until right before college. I knew that I loved solving problems and fixing things, and that lead me to engineering. I also loved computers so I thought programming would be a good fit. I was lucky in finding something I loved to do, and then finding someone to pay me to do it full time.

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.
