Mentor Since: 2016


Job Description

On our EY Assurance teams, you’ll ask better questions that drive increased skepticism around financial information, bringing confidence, perspective and visibility to clients. For example, in Assurance, we ask ‘Can greater insights be found by understanding the complexity behind the obvious?’ We think so. That’s why as a professional in our Assurance practice, you’ll look beyond the obvious to identify patterns and trends that deliver powerful business insight. And you’ll do all of this in a culture where you’ll have confidence in your career path, clear perspective into your future and the support and visibility you need to get there. 

EY is one of the most trusted, respected and influential organizations in the industry. In EY Assurance, you’ll build a better working world by helping to provide peace of mind by using your skills and experience to give companies, investors and regulators confidence in the validity of financial statements, business-critical information and processes. And, as an EY Assurance professional, you’ll have access to the latest industry insights, methodologies and cutting-edge technology to help you deliver exceptional client service. You’ll work with some of the world’s most well-known brands, as well as the entrepreneurs and visionaries of tomorrow – all while broadening your experience and building career value.

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I would help students o think what kind of options they will have after the graduation. We can discuss with students specific work related to Assurance practice at EY as well as the different practice we have at EY. I was once an international student from Japan, and I had really hard time finding the jobs that sponsor me the working visa. Thus I can definitely explain my past experiences for international students as well. I would expect students to have many questions, but it is also important for them to research as much they can before meeting with me in order to have a quality meeting time.

Anyway I am very excited to meet Seattle University accounting students!

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Weekend - Eastside

Weekdays - Evening Seattle
