Supervisor, Internal Audit Department
For Faizal Chaudhury, getting a job in accounting was like getting a round-the-world ticket.
Faizal works for the Stepan Company, a chemical manufacturing company with offices around the world. As one of the people responsible for making sure the company’s internal accounting procedures are running smoothly, Faizal gets to travel all over the globe. “I get to meet new and interesting people all the time, as well as experience different cultures and languages,” he says. “I just love that.”
Faizal understands that when most people think of a CPA, they think of someone who sits in an office all day long. “As an accountant, I’m hardly in my office at all,” he says. “I’m out in the field meeting different people and learning how companies work. “What could be more exciting than that?”
