Jessica Andersen

“I chose accounting to learn more about business and be prepared to own and operate my own business. I chose North Central so I could develop relationships with my professors and classmates and not be just another face in a crowd.”

From the start, Jessica discovered the many options for accounting majors through the Student Accounting Society (SAS). Involved her first year, she became the club’s vice president her senior year.

“It was through SAS events that I learned about the different career paths open to accountants. The club was a great way to make friends, work on group projects and network with professionals outside the school. Being an officer was one of my best experiences.”

Jessica held an internship at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in the enforcement division and landed a post-graduation position at Ernst and Young in the Fraud Investigation and Dispute Service department.
