Andrea Johnson — Accounting

Andrea Johnson


Andrea Johnson is the newest insurance agent at Blackstone Insurance in Lexington. She received her Property and Casualty License in March 2014 and is excited about what the future holds, “I’m learning a whole new area. For so long I’ve worked in a profession that was so exacting, so detailed. Insurance has lots of details too, but it’s not as linear and more open-ended. You have to look at so many options to find the best fit for each customer.”

Andrea grew up in Shelby and became interested in accounting in high school taking classes like Bookkeeping and Accounting I. “As soon as I graduated, I started school at NCTC. I completed my degree in two years and went to work at Ohio Mutual Insurance Company in Bucyrus.”

Her next job was at Hursh Drugs in Mansfield where she stayed for almost 11 years. Of that experience, she remembers, “everyone knew each other and cared about each other. We were like a big family.”

When the economy took a turn and she was downsized, she looked hard for a job, “I sent resumes and had more than 60 interviews, but I was never chosen. I was ready to give up looking for a job using my training and take any job because I needed to work.

“Then I saw the posting online for this job. I really liked that it was a small, intimate office, and the people were friendly. It just felt right to me – like I was meant to be here.”

Andrea’s degree has served her well in a number of jobs and industries. Her friends asked if she missed out by attending NCTC. Her response, “Absolutely not. I wouldn’t change a thing.”

She has a son, Thomas, who attends middle school in Shelby.

Her plans for the future? “I want to keep learning this business and see where it leads me.”

So far, it’s led her to a rewarding career that makes her happy. That’s a worthy goal for her family and customers alike.


Accounting and Related Degrees

Accounting graduates advise and assist management in controlling the financial operations of a business and in planning for its growth. Accounting graduates provide professional services as advisors to management on financial matters affecting the firm in areas of planning, forecasting, cost control, taxes and inventory control.

Business Management is a highly practical, immediately applicable major, which builds upon foundational courses, such as economics, management and marketing. Advanced courses can lead to specialized skills, such as Project Management, Human Resources Management and Professional Sales.

Marketing is more than advertising. It’s more than sales. It begins at the conceptual level of designing a product. It includes research into markets, competitors and needs of a target audience.

NC State has more than 40 agreements with four-year colleges and universities, to provide a smooth transition for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Through university partnerships, some four-year courses are also offered on the NC State campus or online.

Graduates take the Major Field Test covering accounting, management, marketing and economics. The test is administered by Education Testing Services (ETS), the same company that oversees SAT testing. NC State graduates have scored in the top 15% of community college students taking this exam nationwide.
