Accounting degrees lead to career advancement

Accounting degrees lead to career advancement

Brandi Wilkinson and Arlisa Whipple thought going back to school would help in their careers, and they were right.

Working full time at Cullen Supply in Dublin with accounting duties such as payroll, accounts payable/receivable, preparing and paying sales taxes, Brandi was a busy worker and a busy mom. She decided to go to college to learn more about her duties and have a better knowledge of what she was doing and why."

“My new associate’s degree in accounting didn’t get me a promotion, but it did help me change my working hours for the better,” explains Brandi. “I now only work part time making as much money as I did working full time and have more time to spend with my daughter."

“It also allows me to start my own business filing income taxes from my home next year to make more money. Going back to school was the best decision I ever made.”
