I am sending announcements about my daughter’s graduation from college. I want to include a sentence about her post-graduation plans. Originally I wrote,

Rose will pursue her master of accountancy at XYZ University, after which she has accepted a position with ABC in Atlanta.

Concerned that there should be parallel structure between the verbs, I changed the second part to

...after which she will work for ABC in Atlanta

but I am not happy with the words “work for.” Does anyone have a suggestion for alternative phrasing? Also, should “master of accountancy” be capitalized?

    Why are you not happy with work for?

  • Do you know what work she will do, and can you use that verb? Intern in Atlanta with her Master of Accountancy? May 27, 2020 at 16:52
  • Good idea. She will be an auditor.
