About Internal Audit Manager

August 24th, 2017

Internal audit managers perform internal financial and operational audits. They operate independently of all other departments of the organization. On the job, internal audit managers review accounting procedures, identify business process risks, investigate causes of irregularities and recommend corrective action.
The minimum educational qualification required to become an internal audit manager is a bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, business administration or an associated field. Getting hired in this role can be very difficult without any experience. The best way to obtain the necessary experience is by doing an internship. A keen eye for detail and strong organizational, analytical, accounting and problem-solving skills are essential for this role.
Expect to undergo a rigorous interview for this role. Prospective employers will want to make sure that you have what it takes to conduct their internal audit efficiently and accurately. They may ask you to perform a mock audit to gauge your performance. Giving strong answers to all questions is the key to a successful interview. To prepare in advance for your interview, go to Mock Questions and give some thought to how you will answer the questions listed there.
