Episode Info

Episode Info:

John Bryan, CPA and now high school teacher in the Houston, Texas, area shared his career journey with us this week on Life In Accounting, the Where Accountants Go podcast!

Started at PwC

Although he has now been a teacher for 17 years, John’s career started out in the audit field. After moving from internship into a staff position with PriceWaterhouseCoopers and gaining experience for two years, he switched into industry and worked in internal audit for almost an additional decade before making the career change.


While doing community service work through his employer, John found that he enjoyed the school atmosphere and decided to help out by teaching a class at church. He was given a 10th grade class to lead at church, and that further made him realize that he enjoyed teaching. Through an alternative certification process he was able to qualify to teach classes at the high school level and his 2nd career was born. He now teaches Accounting and other business-related courses such as finance and business law at the high school level.

The Upcoming Generation…

Another benefit of this episode is that John shares some valuable insight on the upcoming generation that will soon be working alongside us. It’s important that we understand their needs and value their perspective. As with all generations, we all have different experiences that are beneficial to helping us move forward in the workplace. I think you will find this episode beneficial and interesting no matter what point you may be at in your own career. John is making a difference in the world, and that always makes for a good story.
