Mr. Not Your Dad’s CPA

About Me:

Currently an accountant with three years of experience consisting of 2 years in public accounting (National firm but not Big 4) and a little over a year in private industry. I worked for a F500 hospitality company as a senior accountant working with various hotels and tech startups. I was let go due to Covid and I am now working as an accountant for a tech startup, also in a senior accountant role. This pandemic has forced me to look inward and I have realized I want to put my business skills to use in the medical field, working for a non-profit focused on a rare genetic disease I live with. To have an impact in this role I first want to work for a top management consulting firm and learn how to solve an organization’s most pressing problems.

Many of my clients this year have done soul searching through lay-offs, personal experiences and all the events of the last year. In career changing, I think it is important to be able to show a personal tie to what you want to change to and show that you have built skills that can be leveraged into your post-MBA career.
