Former NABA President
I.T. Audit Associate at
I participated in NABA-UTD and NABA-DFW while attending UTD. These organizations helped me to grow my professional network, interview with accounting firms that seemed elusive, and challenge my leadership skills. I interviewed for spring Audit internships with Deloitte, Moss Adams, and BKD at the 2017 NABA Conference, after meeting with professionals at the NABA Conference's Career Expo. As the President of our NABA student chapter during the 2016-2017 school year, I connected with accounting professionals and recruiters to invite them to NABA meetings. The next school year I attended the annual Ernst & Young (EY) NABA Workshop in Dallas and met several recruiters and staff. I was later selected for an interview and offered a position at EY. When I asked the EY recruiter why I was selected, she said that my extensive participation in NABA and EY events set me apart. If you take NABA seriously, you can build skills and contacts needed to get your dream jobs and later perform well in those roles.
