INCPAS Scholar Alumni: What are you most looking forward to when you enter the profession?
"I look forward to the endless possibilities there are with this career, from becoming a CPA and gaining experience in a variety of industries, to one day becoming an entrepreneur. The CPA profession allows you the versatility to follow your dreams and goals, whatever they may be."
—Jose Herrera, sophomore at Purdue, majoring in accounting & finance with a certification in entrepreneurship, INCPAS Scholar 2017
"I am looking forward to meeting new people, learning about and helping them, and making friendships in the workplace. Those relationships are what make the workplace fun and enjoyable.
I am also looking forward to no more homework and finals. I will always be learning something new every day, but I won't have to study for tests or stay up late studying for finals every semester after I graduate."
