At Grant Thornton, I was an audit and assurance associate for nearly two years, and two full busy seasons. I worked on a range of different types of audits, reviews, and compilations for several key industries in the Wisconsin region.
Beginning in my second year at Grant, I started to serve as the 'in-charge' accountant for various benefit plan and audit engagements. As the in-charge, I was responsible for the engagement timing, audit documentation, peer review, as well as the financial statement preparation in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
The most difficult part of the job was managing several engagements concurrently, however my hard work and determination provided me the platform in which I was able to provide deliverables in a timely manner.
I worked on engagements in numerous types of industries such as governmental, manufacturing, insurance, wholesaler, real estate, IT, as well as the non-for-profit sector.
