Get to know Rick Cook, Accountant/Financial Analyst
Before Eureka, what other jobs did you have?
My first job was at Pine Hills Golf Course in Ottawa, where I worked as a Groundskeeper. I worked there for three years until I graduated college in December 2019 and joined Eureka two weeks later.
What are your responsibilities at Eureka?
Some of my responsibilities at Eureka include daily and monthly reconciling of accounts, balancing the investment portfolio, tracking fixed assets, helping customers, and preparing various financial reports.
Tell us a little about yourself outside of work?
My favorite hobbies are golfing and playing video games. I like to spend time with friends and family and have a relaxing day outside when the weather is warm. I also love to travel both in the U.S and to other countries, my goal is to visit at least 50 countries.
What kind of advice would you have for a soon to be college graduate?
As a recent college graduate myself I would say prepare to be met with challenges but don’t let them overwhelm you, if you put forth the effort it will be well worth it in the long run. Also, make paying off you student debt your number one priority after college.
