"My clients treat me as if I'm one of their own..."
I started my career in San Diego, Calif., working as an accountant and then a controller for a fairly large, nonprofit, social service organization. Even though I worked on accounting and administrative tasks and not program, I felt like I was part of their bigger mission. I moved back to New Jersey in the summer of 2014, and it was then that I saw the job posting for Your Part-Time Controller. The work sounded interesting and exactly like what I was doing in California but only for multiple nonprofit organizations with the benefits of a for-profit. I applied and got the job, and I started with YPTC in October 2014.
After only a short time of working at YPTC, I knew I was never, ever leaving! My clients treat me as if I’m one of their own staff members, and I know that I am helping them greatly with the work I’m doing, and I’m therefore a part of their bigger mission! It’s a wonderful feeling!
