Bethany Eggleston

Bethany Eggleston, a CPA whose career journey took her into the field of project management, shares her insights on the similarities and differences between the two fields on this episode of Life In Accounting, the Where Accountants Go podcast.

In this interview, we will cover Bethany’s early years as she became interested in accounting due to a familial influence, and then how her career started with one of the Big 4 firms in an audit position.  We’ll also cover her transition into a position in industry with a publicly-traded organization, and then her eventual move into project management within the energy sector.

Bethany also covers…

  • How project management and audit require some of the same skill-sets,
  • What she finds fascinating and enjoys each day about her role in project management, and
  • How getting involved in professional associations such as the CPA Society in your area can help you stay connected and move along faster in your career

This episode is packed with insights, and you’ll get a little project management education along the way as well!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it.
