Major: Accounting & Business and Organizations
Residence: Detroit, Mich.
Career: Core Assurance, PricewaterhouseCoopers
I will be working for PricewaterhouseCoopers in their Core Assurance practice in Detroit.
There I will be working with a team to perform external audits for various clients. The audit will
look through the client’s financial statements and ensuring that they are in accordance with GAAP.
Each day offers a somewhat unique challenge. Accounting is a field that, while it stays
constant in the overall tasks and procedures, offers different spins on each issue that keep the job
interesting. It also provides me with the ability to work constantly in Excel, utilizing my skills in the
program and testing my logical skills. I also like the fact that I get to learn about a variety of
businesses and how they operate by observing the different financial statements and supporting
Albion helped me get a better picture of what I wanted to do with my career. Talking with
professors and attending the networking events was a large part of that. Speaking of the networking
events, that is a major part of how Albion helped me succeed. Albion provided a well-developed
networking of accounting professionals through which I was eventually able to connect with PwC.
My favorite part of Albion was the personal attention from the professors. A few of my
professors took an interest in my success and how I was going to proceed with my future. They
were able to help not only in class but also outside of class which is the benefit of going to a smaller
school. Albion made it possible for me to get to know my professors and to know most if not all of
the people in my classes and majors.
... was the jumping off point. It provided me with all of the tools I needed to navigate the challenges of finding and preparing for a job while also encouraging me through the times when it was not always easy.
