Auditor General Timothy L. DeFoor announced his department is expanding its career pathways to include graduates of accredited associate degree programs in the areas of accounting, business, data analytics, finance, economics, math or another closely related field.

"Our goal is to create pathways to careers and expand opportunities to good jobs to more Pennsylvanians than ever before," Auditor General DeFoor said. "As a community college graduate, I can tell you firsthand that associate degree programs offer practical, hands-on training that prepares students for high-demand industries like auditing.
