Former Forensic Accounting/Economic Crimes CoOp at Delaware County District Attorney's Office

Well, you walk into the white collar crime unit, usually have one of the detectives make fun of something your wearing or doing, then simply hop onto your computer and analyze the case file or cases given to you to work. Most of the work is reconciling the actual numbers with the fraudulent numbers and accounting for the differences in excel (this means data entry too). Next, you simply make a pivot chart or graph depicting your findings and simply explain it, so that when a detective is telling the jury what it means, they can comprehend it (you must assume the jury understands nothing about accounting, just like your not expected to know anything about accounting or finance). Most importantly, the food is fantastic and cheap.
