    Just a matter of taste. I would say "with" if I were telling you what her job in most contexts. But I would use "for" if I were introducing her in a work situation or in her professional capacity.

    To be "with" a company is to be an employee. To be "for" a company could be either a company's in house accountant or a private accountant doing work "for" a company. On occassions professionals are introduced for a false impression in terms such as this, "And this is Tom Jones who is with us as our attorney."
