Product Development Manager
Hi Shayla. I started my career in an audit function for Deloitte. Like many jobs it has its pros and cons, but, one of the main things that I enjoyed was that the position gave me the opportunity to learn about several different companies in a very short period of time. In addition, when I was in audit I was able to engage with staff throughout an organization from individual contributors as well as members of senior management/chief executives. Through the audit function you can learn about key processes within a company and identify recommendations that may help reduce risk, improve efficiency, etc. which are all helpful for later in your career. The skills I gained at Deloitte helped me when I was interviewing at Fannie Mae, and have continued to help prepare me for each of my subsequent roles at the company.
