From the Paper:

""What kind of job is that?" I wondered to myself, as I sat in front of my Compaq Presario computer at home, researching possible career paths that have yet to be taken. I was logged onto the website, when I noticed the job title "Forensic Accountant" on top of the list of occupations that fit my interests. I had taken Accounting classes in high school, received good grades in them and enjoyed the tasks that were involved with the class work."
