What is Forensic Accounting?

The Forensic Accountant (FoA) is one of the most vital and sought-after careers in the FBI. Forensic Accounting involves the use of accounting skills, auditing and investigative techniques to research and follow the systems through which money may be funneled or laundered. -FBI

The Perfect Opportunity

One of my favorite hobbies is solving jigsaw puzzles. Accounting involves a puzzle of numbers that needs to be pieced together to answer a mystery. Two of my family members have a CPA certification and three other family members served in the military. The FBI offers a career in accounting that allows me to follow in my family's footsteps.
