Work-Study and Degrees Pay Off for Accountant
Jul 10, 2012
For Janice Cain (pictured), her degrees in accounting and business management are already paying off. Janice is using the skills that she acquired at the Florence Campus as a seasonal tax examiner with the Internal Revenue Service and as an employee at Bottom Line Services where she works in the billing department. Besides using her accounting degree in these positions, Janice is also pursuing a bachelor’s degree in accounting in National’s online degree program. She says that as a non-traditional student, National College has been the perfect fit for her and has increased her confidence to achieve her professional goals of working in the accounting field.
Besides her coursework, Janice feels that she also benefited from being a work study student. She stated that her work study position really helped her become self-motivated and a self-starter. An additional benefit that Janice gained as a work study was learning how important it is to be a team player and develop rapport in the workplace by helping fellow students, faculty, and staff.
