Auditors are financial experts who specialize in performing internal financial and risk management audits for companies. They may work in the accounting department of a large organization or they may provide auditing services to smaller organizations as an employee with an independent chartered and certified firm. As part of their job, auditors review companies' financial accounts to ensure that they are legal and valid. Depending on their findings, they recommend measures that would help the company save money and minimize risks.
A bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, economics or a related subject will help you get started in this field as an internal auditor. External auditors are required to qualify as chartered accounts through a recognized accounting body. Experience is a must to be hired by established companies. Doing an internship will help you gain the work experience you need when starting out. Meticulous attention to detail, ability to work to deadlines, a strong aptitude for maths, an interest in financial analysis, and outstanding problem-solving and analytical skills are all essential attributes in this role.
At your interview, be prepared to emphasize your passion for financial analysis and problem-solving. To get the job, your answers must reflect your knowledge, expertise, and interest in performing all auditing-related tasks. The interviewer may give you a mock audit to perform to gauge your competency. Interviews for auditor roles are usually rigorous. You can prepare for your upcoming interview by going to Mock Questions and rehearsing your answers to the questions listed there.
