5 years full-time work experience with solid part time while in school: Local community bank, promoted twice. Teller, to credit analyst, to the only auditor by 22. Took 7 years, started in high school.

Currently working in Fortune 100 manufacturing. Promoted twice now - Auditor to Finance Analyst, to Senior Analyst. Have multiple quantifiable projects I can call out that saved money. Been here for just under 4 years.

Fair amount of volunteer work, as well as plenty of extracurriculars (in a band, running group, etc.)

If I can’t hit the targets, any thoughts on good fallbacks?
