Give me an example of how SOX compliance has affected your career.
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"SOX Compliance affects everything I do as an auditor. If there's no control for an issue that arises, then the company needs to create one. I've assisted in several different types of audits from User Access Reviews, Financial Audits, and Information Security Audits. All fall under the SOX Compliance regulations that have been enacted."
Example #2
"I haven't had any auditing experience working in a professional setting. I just graduated and I think education is an integral part to gaining the technical knowledge necessary to become an auditor. I took several Auditing classes and was able to focus my courses on the financial audit. I enjoyed finding discrepancies and chasing down leads. It's like a financial jigsaw puzzle that when correctly put together, ensures the accuracy of the company's financial statements for the public."
Example #3
"I have my Certified Information Systems Auditor designation from ISACA, so I'm certified to audit information systems. My first accounting position was as an internal auditor on the front lines of a User Access Review and Termination controls, both of which are information security concerns for any company. I enjoyed auditing so much I became an internal financial auditor for 4 years before moving to an external auditor role with PWC, one of the big four accounting firms, for 3 years, so I'd say that SOX has impacted my career at every turn."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
