Laurie’s Answer

I chose audiology.40 years ago when I was in college only needed a masters degree.Now an Aud is needed.I was lucky enough to be in a program that was headed by a great professional who became my mentor and co-author if a paper based on my masters thesis that I presented at state convention.Needed to get all of degrees back then to get a job,but part of program was to do practium in various hospital audiology departments which eventually turned into job. When I was looking at courses I needed to achieve my goal I thought how am I going to get through all these high level scientific courses. But did,each one builds on last course.Only course I really had problems with was phonetics in undergrad work which helped me change my course of study from speech therapy to audiology.

Stacey’s Answer

Hello! I chose accounting as a career. I fell into it before going to college through a part time job and found I loved it. I completed 4 years of college. I went to college later in life so worked numerous accounting roles (A/R, A/P, Bookkeeper) before becoming an accountant. Look at career paths for accountants. A CPA is the route you want to go as an accountant, but every career path is different. I shadowed many accountants through my career. I did not go to any school clubs for math. I struggled with biology classes- I have more of a math brain than a science brain. In my career I have been able to put to use skills and learned how to analyze items in a different perspective.
