Bronco Spotlight: Erica Sheahan
Internal Auditor at KPMG
If you had a campus job or internship, how did they impact your career development?
I had an internship the summer before my senior year at Gordon Food Service in their Internal Audit Department. This internship was an amazing experience and it really opened my eyes to the Internal Audit career path.
What experiences impacted the choice of your career path?
One experience that impacted my choice in career path was the Business Externship Program. This program connects WMU students with mentors from different companies and allows you to observe the day-to-day activities in a professional work environment. This allows you to explore the different career paths within your degree.
What advice do you have for others pursuing a career similar to yours?
The advice that I would give to someone pursuing a career similar to mine is to do internships. Do as many internships as you can because this is how you get a feel of the real world and it helps determine what you would want to do after graduation.
