Summary

I am currently completing my BA in Accounting and Information Systems at Queens College at the City University of New York.  I will be graduating this May in the year 2009.   I plan on earning my CPA certification within 2 years of graduating. 

The type of work opportunities I am looking for are in the field of Auditing with respect to the International Business, Service Industry, and Renewable Energy Sectors.  I am also interested in Social Networking with respect to Marketing and Finance.   I choose these fields all for different reasons. 

  • International Business interests me because I enjoy traveling and am able to adapt easily to changing surroundings.  Traveling to new places brings excitement to my life. 
  • Renewable Energy auditing is important to me because it is where the Energy sector is heading.  Solar Energy and other Renewable Sources are the future and I want to be on the forefront of this movement. 
  • Service Industry auditing would be ideal because I've been employed in that industry for years and my knowledge base would make me a valuable asset for any firm.
  • Social Networking is also a desirable field because it is a quickly-growing industry that is not quite understood yet but has the potential to change our world in ways we have not yet imagined.
