Senior staff accountant Abisola Okuk’s role has changed a lot since she first came to MIT back in 2014. She started in the Media Lab as an administrative assistant, then moved to the MIT Sloan School of Management’s external relations team, and is now senior staff accountant in the Office of the Vice President for Finance (VPF). Over that time, she’s discovered an interest in finance and developed new skills to advance her career.
“After six years at the Media Lab, I found the flame of my interest in finance and realized I wanted to pursue a career in that space,” says Okuk, who works in accounts receivable with VPF. “My growth came from working hard, gaining new skills, and looking out for opportunities. I like that I’m able to work collaboratively with an amazing team and contribute to the Institute’s mission. It gives me a sense of fulfillment.”
