Career Conversations with an Anderson Alum





Hello business students! More specifically, accounting students!


I trust all of you are having a wonderful semester! Some of you may be at the point where you are ready to graduate, and others are still trucking along! Keep going! You can do this!


Choosing accounting as your concentration at Anderson was a big decision and the RIGHT one! One of your next thoughts should be about getting your CPA license. I am going to tell you why it is awesome to say YES to this decision and give you some awesome resources for getting started! 
There are two small books that I found very informational but also fun! They have quirky quotes and fun facts about CPAs, I highly recommend them!

I have left a copy of each in the Career Services/Advisement office if you want to stop and take a look at them! I enjoyed them and they made me even more excited for my decision to become a CPA!

My top 3 reasons why you should get your CPA license:

#1 Job Security & Possible Increased Salary. Think about it, if you were vying for a job with another candidate that had the exact same experience and education as you, but you had those three beautiful letters behind your name, who are they going to choose? It is a prestigious honor to receive this license and employers know the hard work and dedication that goes into it.

#2 Those 3 letters after your name = Respect. This reason is enough in and of itself. There are many licenses and qualifications when seen behind your name it immediately distinguishes you. The CPA is one of those. It is a highly sought after license, considered to be one of the hardest, if not the hardest, licensing exams. Not only are you a Certified Public Accountant, it showcases dedication and hard work which translates into many positive things!

#3 For yourself. You have made the decision to be an accounting major, which is not an easy feat! You have worked hard for your degree, so you owe it to yourself to put the cherry on top and get your CPA license! Although it is not required in the accounting world, you should definitely take the four exams and put yourself in a great position for success!

Where to start? I know when I first started to think about getting my CPA, I was wondering what resources there were, where I should start, what requirements do I need to fulfill before I can sit for sections, and so many more questions! 

I have great news! There are AMAZING resources for you, whether you are just starting to think about sitting for the exams or you are in the middle of studying and you need a little bit of extra help!

The AICPA website is a great place to start!  

There is an immense amount of information about the exams, licensure, scholarships you can apply for, and tons more! I also HIGHLY recommend visiting the This Way to CPA website

Create an account with them and have access to resources that will make you successful in your CPA journey!

If you already have a job with a local firm or another firm out of town, they may have information about getting you study courses, if not, I will list some great ones to look into. I highly recommend looking into each and seeing how they are set up, to see which one will fit best for you!

There are so many more options, but these are the more popular ones!

I hope you all feel a little more assured and at ease with your decision to become a CPA. It is a great decision for your professional career! I wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!



Brittanie Vega is a recent graduate from the  Master of Accounting program. Additionally, Brittanie completed her  BBA with a double concentration in Accounting and Finance from Anderson!

Career Conversations with an Anderson Alum




Embrace the Jungle Gym

By Terri Nikole Baca

It was more than a few years ago when I first read Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead, but one of the book’s themes has resonated with me since.  Sandberg thoughtfully shares that it is better to think in terms of a career “jungle gym” rather than a career “ladder.”  Ladders have traditionally been a metaphor to describe career growth, but this is 2017, and I can assure new graduates that success will come from a jungle gym of career turns and leaps.  These maneuverers may seem risky in the moment, but will guide you to success as long as you do your part by always demonstrating excellent work ethic, integrity, and a willingness to learn. 

When I graduated from UNM with a BBA in 2005, I felt pressure to interview with companies in my field of training, which was finance.  But the truth is, I was 22 years old and my “field of training” in the real world had largely been working student positions at UNM and waiting tables on the weekends for extra cash.  I had no idea what my next step on the ladder was supposed to be—so I decided to keep going to school and enrolled at the UNM School of Law in Fall of that year.

I graduated in 2008 with no job offer in sight and unsure whether I was interested in practicing law.  Between studying for the bar exam and worrying about my future, I was too anxious to calm down and enjoy my last summer before summer breaks no longer existed.  I took the bar exam in July and was waiting for the results when I got a call from then Public Regulation Commission chairman Ben Ray Luján’s campaign staff.  Chairman Luján was in the middle of a campaign for the U.S. Congress, for the seat formerly held by now Senator Tom Udall.  His staff was looking for a campaign field director to help, and they had heard of me through some campaign volunteer work I had done in law school.  “Sure,” I said.  Maybe knocking on doors and making call lists had nothing to do with a law degree, but I needed a job and this sounded fun. 

Beth Comstock, Vice Chair of General Electric, has said that she likes to hire people who can “Figure it Out” (FIO).  These are people who can successfully handle tough situations or working outside their comfort zone—like those who have served in Peace Corps or Teach for America.  Campaign work was my “FIO” and the skills I learned in those months---though I didn’t realize it at the time—certainly prepared me for my future jungle gym leaps.

Five months later, my first “real job” out of school landed me in Washington DC, working for newly-elected Representative Luján as his Legislative Counsel.  I dove right in to the legislative process and federal government, focusing on technology, energy, education, and telecommunication policy.  I took these skills with me to my next job in the nonprofit sector as policy director for a national education organization, then shifted to managing public policy for a local chamber of commerce.  Finally, I landed in the private sector at AT&T, my most recent turn on the jungle gym, a position I was only able to secure because of the broad experience I had gained through my jungle gym of career moves.  I hope that as new or recent graduates, or as professionals looking for a career change, you will embrace the jungle gym and not be afraid to take chances with your career path---even if it means taking a pay cut or making a lateral move to get somewhere better in the long run.
