Jessica McClain, CPA, CGFM, CISA, and PMP, joined us from Washington, D.C., for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. If you are considering whether public accounting or industry would be the better fit for you, you will find tremendous value in this episode. Jessica started in public accounting, moved into industry, moved back into public accounting, and then most recently back into industry. As Jessica mentions in the interview, everyone’s needs are unique and it’s important to find the path that works best for you. Although she enjoyed her time in public accounting, there came a time in her life when it just wasn’t quite the right fit anymore, and therefore she made a change. In addition to Jessica’s career story, we also talk about “work/life balance”, “work/life integration”, and the difference between the two. Plus, we discover how she ended up getting four, yes count them… four (!), certifications. If you enjoy this episode, please also listen in these interviews: Shanikwa Davis and Lindsay Stevenson.
